    October 31, 2021 - Ripe black fruit, leaning new world

    March 18, 2021 - A little heavier/denser that I was expecting but very enjoyable. Took a few minutes to blow off a little bit of the barnyard that dominated at opening. Black cherrys, 5 spice, blackberry, rhubarb. Pleasant clay tannins.

    December 13, 2019 - A blend of two parcels, one 65 year old and the other 45 year old. 35hl/ha. No new oak. Great concentration and density for a village Volnay. Densely packed bouquet of dark berries and fresh earthy note. Some dry extract with good phenolic ripeness. A village Volnay with substantial substance and depth. (84/100)

    July 5, 2019 - Domaine Tasting at Y Clerget (Pommard): 2 parcels averaging 45 y/o vines. Full nose with overt ripe red fruit. Rich and ripe on the palate but with good underlying freshness. Plenty of stuffing, though a bit short now though I'd expect this to lengthen out with more time given how well this wine has showed in 2015/2016/2017. 88-90

    July 5, 2019 - Y. Clerget Cellar Visit and Tasting (Pommard): Barrel tasting at the domaine. From two parcels just below Champans, averaging 45 yo vines. Black and red cherry with good ripeness that dominates, making this a fun but slightly one-dimensional wine. This doesn't quite live up to how much I really enjoyed this wine from both 2015 and 2016, but I never tasted those from barrel, so judgment reserved.
