Domaine Y. Clerget

Côte de Beaune

Domaine Y. Clerget roots go back to the 13th century when the Clerget family settled in the village of Volnay in 1268. The main recorded history started in 1936, when the Clerget family acquired the Clos du Verseuil 1er Cru vineyard in Volnay as a Monopole. Over the years the domaine changed generations within the family, until 1983 when Yvon Clerget took the lead and was responsible of making the wines. But as Thibaud (Yvon’s son, who is the 28th generation of the Clerget family to make wine in Volnay!) was still too young, Yvon’s retired and his last vintage was 2009, and until Thibaud completed his studies and his internship in Domaine Hudelot-Noellat in 2015 – there was no wine bottled by the domaine (the grapes were sold to Henri Boillot).

Thibaud took the lead of the legendary family domaine in 2015 at the age of 24 and 2015 was his first vintage – declairing the re birth of Domaine Y. Clerget. The vineyards of Domaine Y. Clerget extend to 6 Hectares and consist of prime vineyards carefully selected and treasured by the family over generations.

Quoting Antonio Galoni ( words express what both wine critics and anyone who was fortunate to taste the wines feels: “The reborn Domaine Y. Clerget could very well turn out to be one of the great recent success stories in Burgundy… Readers should do whatever they can to taste these wines. [Thibaud] Clerget is just 28 and appears to have a brilliant career in front of him. Bravo!”
