Originally owned by the Jaboulet-Vercherre family and marketed by Louis Jadot, Domaine de la Commaraine is one of the most aristocratic single estates of Burgundy since the 12th century when it was founded. It is now owned by Harvard Professor, Denise Dupré, and Mark Nunelly, former Managing Director of a Boston Capital investment fund, since 2017, who aims to revive the Clos de la Commaraine wine to its former glory and make it one of the best Premier Crus of Cote de Beaune. To achieve this, they made an agreement with Domaine Comte du Liger-Belair's winemaker, Louis-Michel Liger-Belair to be the consultant for the wine and the first vintage under his control was the 2018 which was also the first year of implementing biodynamic farming.
Clos de la Commaraine is a historic 3.75-ha monopole, premier cru-status vineyard, located on the north of Pommard. A true "Clos" with walls enclosing the monopole and the Chateau. In Jean-Francois Bazin's "Le Vin de Bourgogne" ("Wines of Burgundy"), he commented that Clos de la Commaraine is among the three vineyards that should be considered as Grand Cru vineyards. And for Louis-Michel Liger-Belair from one of the top Vosne-Romanee producers to be managing the production of this wine is an absolutely exhilarating news for any Burgundy lover out there.
We are delighted to offer a parcel of Vintage 2021, with transit time of around 4 weeks to Hong Kong -
2021 Domaine de la Commaraine Pommard Clos de la Commaraine Monopole 1er Cru
HK$1,400 per bottle, 18 bottles available
18pts Jancis Robinson
91pts Neal Martin
The 2021 Pommard Clos de la Commaraine is a monopole owned by the domaine due to be overlooked by a luxury hotel currently under construction. This is completely de-stemmed. Two bottles were opened as I was not happy with the first - and a good decision as the second is much fresher. Quite earthy in style, you might actually assume there are some stems in the mix. The palate is medium-bodied with pliant tannins, a keen line of acidity, not amazingly complex yet cohesive and with an attractive pastille-like finish. There'll be better to come, but this is commendable for a challenging growing season.
Subject to final confirmation. ETA 4 weeks.
Delivery is free-of-charge for single purchase above HK$3,000 or 6 bottles (or accumulated amount at time of delivery); otherwise, a standard delivery fee of HK$100 applies.
