Justerini & Brooks Tasting note

Domaine de la Commaraine, St Aubin, Murgers des Dents de Chien, 1er Cru, 2022

Quite a serious, savoury nose. Mineral and then, on the palate, lots of rich yet taut fruit and no shortage of acidity. There’s structure here and depth, with waves of grapefruit-scented, luscious yet energetic fruit, touches of grapefruit and salt, and an impressive amount of bite and extract. Rich, yet rather lovely. An excellent debut.

Domaine de la Commaraine

This is a very exciting new find for us indeed. The Clos de la Commaraine, a fine 3.75ha Premier Cru Monopole in Pommard has long been something of a sleeping giant. Originally classed in Lavalle's 1855 classification as a Première Cuvée, the potential of this vineyard has always been well known. Initially owned by the Jaboulet-Vercherre family, during which time it was made and marketed by Louis Jadot, it was bought in 2017 by Harvard Professor, Denise Dupré, and Mark Nunelly, former Managing Director of a Boston Capital investment fund, with the ambition to restore the wine to its former glory and make it one of the great Premiers Crus of the Côte de Beaune. The first, and most crucial, step they made was to sign up Louis-Michel Liger-Belair to control production. Louis-Michel has a free hand to make the wine as he sees fit, starting in the vineyard, which will be fully converted to biodynamics. The first vintage under his control was 2018 - a thrilling debut vintage and an exciting new chapter for the estate.
