Regular priceSale price
Thibaud Clerget is the 28th generation to make wine in his family. That's a lot of Clerget's making vino. In 2009, Thibaud's father, Yvon decided to retire, knowing his son would soon be ready to take over. Yvon mad the decision to sell the grapes from the family holdings in Volnay and Pommard to Henri Boillot. During this time, Thibaud worked closely with the Boillot family and also Domaine Hudelot-Noellat, and after a 3 year boot camp style apprenticeship, was ready to take back his family's vines. And so far, Thibaud is totally nailing it.
The Les Santenots is packed with bright red fruit, a little baking spice and well rounded tannin and minerals. Unfined, unfiltered.
