  • Neal Martin, January 2022, Score: 94-96

    The 2020 Pommard Les Rugiens 1er Cru includes 20% whole bunch with 20% new oak, zero pigeage. The bouquet is taut, fresh and mineral-driven, really poised and surfeit with vigour. The palate is medium-bodied with a fine bead of acidity, slightly chalky in texture, beautifully balanced with a persistent, complex finish. This is my pick from Clerget this vintage, a wine that boasts impressive potential pedigree. Drink 2026-2048

  • Burghound, April 2022, Score: 92-95

    An interesting hint of blood orange adds breadth to the layered, cool and nearly as elegant aromas of rose petal, violet, poached plum and anise. There is excellent volume to the muscular and powerful big-bodied flavors that exude a lovely bead of minerality on the compact, moderately austere and beautifully well-balanced finale. This is terrific though note well that it is absolutely built for longer-term cellaring. Sweet spot. Outstanding. Drink 2035+.

  • Jasper Morris MW, January 2022, Score: 93-96

    20% new wood and whole bunch, and one punch down. Mid to full purple with an interestingly complex nose, which has a certain but not exaggerated ripeness but then swings through several fruit profiles. Rich succulent fruit with significant charm, I like the way the tannins blend in, as Thibaut has indeed tried to vinify to accentuate the charm rather than the muscle. Exceptional persistence and a very good red velvet texture.

Thibaud Clerget is the 28th generation of his family to make wines in and around Volnay. They have farmed here since 1268. And yet Domaine Clerget feels like a new name on the scene. Thibaud’s father Yvon retired in 2009 and between then and 2015 the fruit had been sold to a local négociant whilst son Thibaud travelled. He spent time in Oregon and New Zealand developing his winemaking skills and knowledge and then completed his apprenticeship with Charles Van Canneyt at Domaine Hudelot-Noëllat in Vougeot before finally returning to the family estate in 2015. He has inherited 6 hectares of superbly tended vineyards, the majority of which are in Volnay. He destems all his fruit and aims to make refined, naturally expressive wines.Read less

Region

Pommard

A long popular appellation, Pommard is yet another exclusive red wine area which produces by far the most structured reds of the Côte de Beaune. It extracts rich body and long ageing potential from the limestone/iron-rich clay soil. Some examples can be markedly rustic, yet as time has passed and winemaking know-how has improved, Pommard's wines are becoming softer and more approachable when young. Its vines cover 317 hectares of which over a third are premier cru vineyards. Several have pronounced following and even one, Les Rugiens, is being pushed to become a grand cru.
