Reviews 89-91 points Vinous "Fuller and more tannic than their Vosne-Romanees, and reflects the grand cru status well, with ample fruit and structure and superb length too. Wonderfully appetising and concentrated. Finishes with a dark chocolate bitterness. Proper persistence. (RH)" 93 points John Gilman "The 2017 Clos Vougeot from Domaine Coquard Loison Fleurot is a fine bottle in the making. The estate owns two separate parcels in the Clos and the vines are all old, so the average here is seventy years of age. The wine sees fifty percent new wood and the 2017 version offers up a bright bouquet of cherries, red plums, pigeon, a lovely array of soil tones, woodsmoke, mustard seed and spicy oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and nicely sappy at the core, with ripe tannins, fine focus and grip and a long, nascently complex and soil-driven finish. Good juice."

About Domaine Coquard Loison-Fleurot

Domaine Coquard Loison-Fleurot, popularly known as CLF, is a seasoned player in grape cultivation but a recent entrant to the international winemaking scene. After gaining a firm domestic base, Commercial Director Claire Fleurot expanded the enterprise's horizon to global markets.

The 9-hectare portfolio of this multi-generational family-owned vineyard boasts a series of prestigious grand cru sites. These include Charmes-Chambertin, Clos de la Roche, Clos-St-Denis, Clos de Vougeot, Échezeaux, and Grands Échezeaux. The portfolio is further enriched with the premier cru site of Vosne Romanée - Les Beaumonts and village plots in Gevrey Chambertin, Morey-St-Denis, Chambolle-Musigny, and Vosne-Romanée.

Renowned winemaker Thomas Colladot has led CLF's winemaking efforts since 2010, gaining considerable acclaim for his skill. Fruit for all CLF wines is hand-harvested, undergoes around 18 months of oak maturation, and is unfined and unfiltered. Grand cru expressions under Colladot's leadership showcase a striking balance of power, site-specific individuality, and fruit concentration, earning high praise from international wine experts.

CLF's offerings are characterized by their terroir transparency and purity, a testament to Colladot's winemaking techniques, such as a 9-day cold soaking prior to 20-24 days of fermentation. The wines also gain depth and complexity from the natural concentration provided by their old vines, many of which were planted between the 1920s and 1960s.

Claire and Thomas jointly manage CLF's vast vineyard collection, embodying a philosophy emphasizing the importance of vineyard quality in creating exceptional wines. As the wine world's best-kept secret, CLF's wines continue to receive growing international recognition, making them increasingly desirable for connoisseurs and collectors alike.
