Reviews 91-93 points Wine Advocate "...wafting from the glass with a rich bouquet of wild berries and raspberries mingled with hints of orange rind, woodsmoke and toasty oak. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, fleshy and enveloping, with succulent acids and melting tannins, concluding with a perfumed and nicely defined finish. (WK)"
About Domaine de la Commaraine
This isn’t their first rodeo - owners Denise Dupre and Mark Nunelly have two other wineries in France and knew exactly what steps to take to achieve their lofty goals:
Step 1 - Hire Jean-Luc Vitoux, a former corporate lawyer and French investor, as Director to lead them on their mission;
Step 2 - Hire the famed Louis Michel Liger Belair as consulting Winemaker;
Step 3 - Extensive research of the Clos (magnetic resonances, underground mapping, and soil composition analysis) to best understand their treasured terroir; and
Step 4 - Convert to organic and biodynamic farming.
Already receiving complimentary acclaim for the inaugural 2018 vintage, they are well on their way to re-establishing La Commaraine “among the most renowned climats” of Burgundy, with their elegant and silky wines that show great refinement, depth, and superb balance (Les Grands vins de Bourgogne).
