Domaine de la Commaraine
A FINE WINE FROM A GREAT TERROIR
The Domaine de la Commaraine, its Clos of 3.63 ha and its Château have their roots deeply in the history of Burgundian wine production as they have existed since the 12th century.
The monopoly-vintage Clos is one of the most prestigious premiers crus in Pommard and one of the most highly-regarded Climats in Burgundy.
In their book on the great wines of Burgundy in 1892, Danguy and Aubertin specify that "in terms of the most well-known climats, let us cite la Commaraine in first position."
This opinion is endorsed by Jean-François Bazin in his work "Le vin de Bourgogne" ("Wines of Burgundy"), in which he states that le Clos de la Commaraine is one of the three climats in Pommard which could perhaps be recognised as a grand cru.
Located on the northern slopes of the appellation, on the Beaune side, le Clos de la Commaraine produces very perfumed, generous wines, which are highly refined and well-balanced.
In order to have a very good knowledge of the Clos de la Commaraine to produce very fine wines, we have carried out precise studies which led us to divide the Clos into eight sub-plots vinified and aged separately.
At the end of the ageing, after tasting each barrels we decide to blend the chosen barrels to create the Clos de la Commaraine.
The Clos de la Commaraine is certified organic with the vintage 2021 and has engaged the biodynamic conversion.
AN EXCEPTIONAL DOMAIN
Since the acquisition, we have given ourselves the mission, over time, to restore this Domain to its former glory.
Formerly made up of 10 hectares, we have endeavored to extend this Domain so that it farms a similar area on the most beautiful terroirs of Burgundy.
Thus, we acquired very beautiful parcels of Nuits Saint Georges 1er cru Roncière, Nuits Saint Georges 1er cru Aux Bousselots and Chambolle Musigny.
More recently, we took over and we are going to take over the farming of more than 3 hectares of vineyards located in prestigious appellations of the Côte de Beaune.
These vineyards are and will be farmed with the same requirement and will be gradually converted to organic and biodynamic.
They will allow us to offer to our lovers of great wines a more complete experience.
Thanks to this exceptional wine heritage, the Domain de la Commaraine will once again shine in the firmament of the Burgundian domains.
