Believe it or not Thibaud Clerget is the 29th generation in his family to make wine in Burgundy. In the interim period between his father's retirement and Thibaud's time learning vast amounts of knowledge working at premier Burgundy estates Hudelot-Noëllat and Henri Boillot, the family estate sold off their fruit. Starting with the 2015 vintage, Yvon Clerget was again producing wines and with Thibaud at the helm it marked a brilliant debut especially for someone just 24 years old. Based in Volnay and possessing some of its most historic sites for high quality wine, Clerget is known for his transparent terroir-driven wines. 'Carelle Sous la Chapelle' is surrounded in history, from its namesake chapel from generations past to the historic Bousse d'Or premier cru which the vineyard sits just below and finally to the vines themselves planted in the late 1960's. Certainly one of Clerget's most contemplative wines, this combines a lacy palate and a savory depth of flavor.
