Domaine Y Clerget Pommard 1er Cru Les Rugiens 2017
Nobody has garnished more attention in recent years as a new vigneron than Thibaud Clerget. It could be his dashing leading man smile or the fact that he resurrected a hibernating Burgundy domaine or that in only a few short years, he is producing some of the region’s best wines. Or all three. The family arguably has the oldest roots in their area, making Thibaud the 28th generation in Pommard/Volnay. From what is considered one of the top 1er Cru vineyards in Pommard comes this wine of sweet red fruit, spice and earthy undertones. Somewhat structured but wonderfully fresh, this wine would benefit from light decanting.
Robin says "Rugiens is one of the vineyards in Pommard that can produce one of its most powerful wines. Naturally gifted, Thibaud has a way of keeping even powerful wines lacy and elegant. And his 2017 Rugiens is a prime example of this gift."
