Description

These vines are high up by the famous Bize whites of Vougeot. Deeper and more opaque with sultry dark fruit, saline and charcoal notes. This vintage seems a little more forward than in recent years as it already boasts some of the classic, velvet, almost milky texture of Vosne. There are so many dimensions here; seashell minerals, silky smooth tannins, soft milk chocolate, a hint of spice and a plunging depth of currant and berry fruit at the core. A great vineyard and an alluring wine that will show well in the shorter term. 2025 to 2031

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.
