Description

Along with the lieus dits of les Condemennes and Clos de l’Orme this is one of the finest vineyards in the Cotes de Nuits not to be of 1er Cru status. The Clergets have 12 tiny parcels in what is already a small vineyard. They are largely planted north to south as the land slopes down from 1er Cru aux Echanges. The first blast of early morning sun to this east facing land gets the plants going and results in a wine of power and muscle. With sinewy, almost black fruits that are beautifully ripe, this will age gracefully into a classically moulded Chambolle. One to look forward to in the medium term. 2026 to 2035

Producer Information: Christian Clerget

The first time I met Christian he was in a hurry to catch a plane to Nepal and climb the 7th or 8th highest peak in the world. Fortunately his wife Isabelle and daughter Justine are equal parts
of a wonderful family who strive to express what their vineyards offer. As Christian says, ‘don’t try to cheat the vines’.

Justine is in charge now though and starting to make her mark. She is forging ahead with biodynamics and using whole bunch fermentation for almost a third of the harvest.
