Domaine Christian CLERGET is a 6 hectare estate in Vougeot, which has seen four generations of wine growers work its vineyards in Chambolle-Musigny, Morey-St-Denis, Vougeot and Vosne-Romanée. Christian and Isabelle Clerget live within the heart of their vineyards, in harmony with their land, as if they were an extension of their garden. They know each vineyard like the back of their hand and strive to respect each vine in order to produce the best possible wines, those which deliver the truest expression of their terroirs, without cheating nature. Their brilliant daughter, Justine, is taking the helm. We are extremely excited for the next generation, already making outstanding wines.

Burgundy 2018 En Primeur Tasting - Tues 21 January
Tuesday 21st January
James has made his annual pilgrimage to Burgundy to taste the 2018s. He says that the glory of the vintage is the freshness, coolness and bright acidities that have been retained despite the power and concentration of fruit. These are far from over-ripe or New World style Pinots and Chardonnays. They are top quality and intense, classic Burgundies.
James has selected a number of producers that are showing quality and value. James and Greg have tasted at least 10 wines for every wine chosen and most wines offered have been tried more than once during the year.
Come along, taste and have the opportunity to order your 2018 en primeur Burgundies.

6.30pm - 8.30

As a blank canvas to an artist, Chardonnay is a variety that allows vineyards and winemakers to create a white of individual expression and character. We will taste examples from Saint Aubin, Meursault, Puligny Montrachet, Chablis, California, South Africa and Australasia to show how vineyards and wine making techniques make the difference to these great wines.
Stellenbosch Cabernet Sauvignon. Tasting The 2015 Vintage - Wed 26th February
Wednesday 26th February
Stand-up Tasting in Our Cellar
6.30pm - 8.30pm
The story of the Stellenbosch Cabernet Collective begins with a tale of passion and creativity. Rising out of an alluring landscape, rich history, vibrant culture and unparalleled architecture, Stellenbosch is one of South Africa’s most prominent wine producing regions and tourist destinations. Today, the region has become the focus of many profoundly adept oenologists and agronomists who use their unique premium local African terroir to produce top quality Cabernet, among other wines. A love for country, community and producing fine wine has given rise to a collaborative group of 35 members who desire to see this region's Cabernets performing against the best on a global platform.
To highlight the groups work, we will profile the “Vintage of the Century” in South Africa with a tasting of over 25 Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 wines from the Stellenbosch Cabernet Collective members. Greg Sherwood MW will be on-hand to answer any questions.
