Tasting Notes

This Volnay Villages is fragrant, silky with notes of rose flowers. 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 25 minutes of decanting or keep up to 2025 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.
