New grower in Burgundy

At the end of last year we made a new discovery in Burgundy. Domaine Coquard Loison-Fleurot in Flagey Echezeaux. I met Thomas Collardot when I was working with Sébastien Cathiard during the 2013 harvest. The two are great friends and often compare notes. CLF has been a family run domaine for generations, but has only recently started bottling its own wine, with Thomas heading up the winemaking in 2010.

They have a staggering clutch of Grands Crus amongst their holdings. The wines have deep colour, concentration of fruit, and the defined structure of great Côtes de Nuits reds. This should prove an extremely exciting domaine to start following. 

Holdings include:

Chambolle Musigny
Morey Saint Denis
Gevrey Chambertin
Vosne Romanée

1er Cru:
Vosne Romanée 1er Cru Les Beaumonts

Grands Cruds:
Clos Vougeot
Charmes Chambertin
Clos de la Roche
Clos Saint Denis

Grands Echezeaux
