This Bourgogne Pinot Noir is subtle and delicate.

Thibaud Clerget took over the family Domaine in 2015, one of the oldest family owned Domaine in the village. Thibaud initiates the rebirth of one of Volnay’s little treasure of a Domaine. Only 6 hectares of vineyards located within the best climats* of Burgundy. The Bourgogne Pinot Noir is made with two vineyards located in Volnay, “Les Longbois and Les Durots” for only 0.35 hectares. The average age of the vineyard is 38 years old.

A rather rich Bourgogne level with plenty of depth. The nose displays powerful aromas of red and black fruits as well as some candied fruits. The palate is fine, with plenty of vibrant red fruits and spice. It can be paired with charcuterie, charred meat, cow cheese and poultry. Drink now with 35 minutes decanting or keep 2020+. 100% Pinot Noir.

"It’s a Volnay like Bourgogne Pinot Noir with a deep complexity. This Bourgogne Pinot Noir is a superb entry-level showing the excellent interpretation of the vintage and built on a fresh structure."

At Domaine Yvon Clerget the grapes are hand harvested, sorted in the vineyard and then destemmed at 100%. The cold maceration takes place for 5 to 7 days and the whole cuvaison last for 15 to 20 days in stainless steel tank. During the cuvaison pump overs are used as well as one pushing the cap per day. The wine undergoes its malolactic fermentation in 228 litres French oak barrels and then is matured for twelve months. Before bottling, the wine is maturing for two months in stainless steel tank. No new oak used.
