    February 11, 2020 - Domaine Tasting at Y Clerget (Pommard): 75 year-old vines. 20% whole cluster. 20% new oak. Nice rich cherry, herbal and spice character. Palate has chewy, sweet red and black cherry. Plenty of structure and built to last. 92+

    February 11, 2020 - Burgundy, Day 1 (Beaune, France): Barrel sample. Made in a style to render Pommard slightly more accessible, from 75-year-old vines. The number of punchdowns has been reduced, and there are 20% stems here. Nonetheless, I feel that this does show the slight burliness of the terroir more, though perhaps it is indeed more accessible. Quite nice, but I definitely prefer the Volnays.

    December 13, 2019 - 30% new oak. 20% whole cluster. 14 barrels made from 1 hectare of vineyard (mostly 80 years old). A darker array of fruits compared to the Volnay. Juicy blueberries, densely packed cherries and ample fine grained tannins. Concentrated and muscular with a nice ripe stemmy lift. Will require 10 years of ageing. Good substance. (87-88/100)

    July 5, 2019 - Domaine Tasting at Y Clerget (Pommard): 20% new oak and 20% whole cluster. The Pommard power and structure shows here vs. the Volnays. More black cherry in the fruit. Tannins feel more rigid. Will need lots of time to integrate and soften. 90-92+ potential.

    July 5, 2019 - Y. Clerget Cellar Visit and Tasting (Pommard): Barrel tasting at the domaine. From Rugiens Bas. 20% new oak, 20% whole cluster. Cross-section of red fruits with some black cherry on finish. Clearly the power of top Pommard comes through in the middle, but this also manages to bring out an elegance from the fruit, coming across as more elegant than fat. Well done. Cellar at least five years.
