About

91-93

"The 2015 Volnay (from Ez Echards and Les Petits Garnets) offers gorgeous aromatic nuance, finely sculpted flavors and lovely depth. Plum, red cherry and spice flesh out in a Volnay endowed with both striking energy and textural depth. The 2015 is a terrific expression of the year, not to mention an absolutely delicious wine.

The reborn Domaine Y. Clerget could very well turn out to be one of the great recent success stories in Burgundy. Thibaud Clerget recently took over the family domaine and has set his sights on making top-notch wines. For the last five years, following Yvon Clerget’s retirement, this fruit was going to a number of other producers, including Henri Boillot, who has been a sort of mentor to the young Clerget. Thibaud Clerget picked a great vintage to make his debut. It is hard to make a meaningful stylistic judgment based on just one vintage, but Clerget's wines share some similarities with Boillot's, namely an intense expression of dark fruit, rich texture and a preference for working with fully destemmed fruit. Readers should do whatever they can to taste these wines. Clerget is just 28 and appears to have a brilliant career in front of him. Bravo!"

Product Description:

"Thibaud Clerget took over the family Domaine in 2015; one of the oldest Domaines in the village. The rebirth of one of Volnay’s little treasures then began with six hectares of vineyards located within the best climats* of Burgundy. This wine is made with two vineyards located in Volnay, “Les Petits Gamets” and “En Echards” totalling just 1.09 hectares. The average age of the vines is 40 years old. This wine features a beautiful and forward bouquet of blueberry, blackberry and fine dark cherry. The palate mounts a rich attack with bountiful fruits and spice. It finishes on candied and fresh mineral notes. It can be paired with charcuterie, charcoaled meat, cow’s milk cheese and poultry. Drink now with 45 minutes of decanting or keep up to 2025 and beyond. 100% Pinot Noir." -Winery

"1.09 hectares total in the lieux-dits of “Les Petits Gamets” and “En Echards” -Importer
