Tasting Notes

This Volnay 1er cru "Clos du Verseuil" is silky, generous and complex. 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. The vineyard of 1er cru 'Clos du Verseuil " is located at the border, north of the renowned Taillepieds climat. The vineyard is 40 years of age. This is very classy wine. The bouquet is complex with notes of dark fruits, subtle spice aromas and vibrant red fruits. The palate is silky, rich and offers plenty of depth. It can be paired with charcuterie, charred meat, a large array of cow's milk cheese and roast poultry. Drink now with 45 minutes of decanting or keep up until 2028 and beyond. - Alex Rougeot

The Clerget family can trace its lineage back to 1268, in the midst of the crusades. It is believed that crusaders brought back Chardonnay grapes from Jerusalem. From this date onwards, the Clergets have worked hard, gaining recognition for the quality of their wines. Strong believers that vineyards are not born equal, they started to isolate the best plots of the Côte de Beaune and to buy pieces little by little, especially in Volnay, home the most refined Pinot Noirs. In 1936, the family bought a very special and small plot of premier cru called 'Clos du Verseuil ", located just next to the magnificent 'Taille Pieds " premier cru. They are the sole owners of this climat of 0.68 hectares. In 1945, Jean Clerget took over the vineyards at the end of World War II. Jean got married in 1948 to Edith Bon in Paris and they gave birth to Yvon Félix in Beaune in 1949.

Yvon studied at the Beaune Wine University, worked alongside his father for a few years and then accepted a job for another winery in Switzerland in 1973. Thereafter, his mother Edith took over the reins with the quality of the wines always at hear, such that she only bottled particularly good vintages. It's in 1975 that Yvon Félix returned and fully took over the Domaine in 1983. After twenty-six vintages under his belt, Yvon decided to sell the grapes to wine merchants. The idea was that eventually, his son Thibaud would take over the reins at the Domaine.
