Description

Another enviable vineyard area of nearly a hectare from two parcels in the ‘Orveau’ sector. Super sweet and generous fruits with plenty of backbone, minerality and length. There’s a certain brilliance and purity that will mark Clerget out as one of the very fine producers in a vineyard that offers a rare combination of the very highest quality and no mean surface area. A Grand Cru for the purist this is technically brilliant, broad, balanced and long, but never over-baked. 2029 to 2041

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.
