Domaine Yvon Clerget Pommard 1er Cru Rugiens


Thibaud Clerget is the 28th generation of his family to make wines in Volnay and Pommard. No, that is not a typo; the Clerget family has been in Burgundy since 1268! The story of Domaine Yvon Clerget is one of rebirth. In 2009, Thibaud’s father Yvon decided to retire from winemaking. Knowing his son had an intense passion to continue the family legacy, he made the decision to sell the grapes from the family holdings in the finest terroirs of Volnay and Pommard to Henri Boillot. During this time, Thibaud began studying the craft of vineyard management and winemaking from two storied names in Burgundy, Henri Boillot and Domaine Hudelot-Noellat. After this three year apprenticeship, Thibaud returned to take over the family domaine. In 2015 he produced his first wines and announced the re-emergence of Domaine Yvon Clerget. Quality of this kind from an inaugural release is incredibly rare and it is clear to all that have followed the rise of Thibaud Clerget, that benchmark status is imminent.

“Exhibiting generous aromas of cherries, espresso roast, dark chocolate and baking spices, the 2018 Pommard 1er Cru Les Rugiens is medium to full-bodied, deep and elegantly muscular, with a broad-shouldered chassis of powdery tannin, lively acids and a nicely defined finish. This has turned out very well, though it will require patience.” – 93 Points, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

“The 2018 Pommard Les Rugiens 1er Cru has an expressive and well-defined bouquet with lifted floral scents, touches of chalk infusing the mixture of red/black fruit, slightly irony with time. The palate is medium-bodied with a structured entry. Quite strict and linear, this is your archetypal Pommard with an almost briny finish. Excellent.” – 93 Points, Neil Martin
