<h1>Domaine Y.Clerget</h1><br> <h2>History</h2> <h3>A Long Family Tradition Since the 13th century, in 1268,the Domain Clerget started making wines of superior quality. This was the period of the crusades, when Burgundy wines, notably, chardonnay, are said to have been served in Jerusalem by the faithful. The dukes of Burgundy even chose the wines of the Domain Clerget for their most important events.</h3> <p>In the 15th century, Burgundy became a part of France. The French kings loved the wine so much that they ordered it for their private cellars in Paris. The Domain Clerget was there. As time passed, the Domaine Clerget in Volnay acquired other neighbouring parcels of vines, such as Pommard, Meursault and the Clos de Vougeot. 1936 the domain acquires the Clos de Verseuil where it is the only owner of this precious terroir. A ‘monople’ in Burgundy is rare . The wines that come from this soil are very much appreciated and in great demand. 1945 Jean Clerget acquires the domain from his father and takes over all of the winemaking and commercialisation. 1948 Jean marries Edith Bon in Paris. 1949 Yvon Felix is born. 1968 Yvon gradutates from the Lycée Viticole in Beaune. 1973 Yvon accepts a job in Switzerland at Vin-Union Geneva, as the head of red winemaking and bottling. 1975 Edith Clerget, takes over the property after the death of her husband. Yvon returns from Switzerland to help his mother with the domain. 1983 Yvon takes over the Domain as owner and winemaker. </p> <a href='http://www.domaine-clerget.com/fr/' title=' Version Française'>Version Française</a><a href='http://www.domaine-clerget.com/en/passion-wines-bourgogne.php' title='A Passion for Burgundy Wines'>A Passion for Burgundy Wines</a><br> <a href='http://www.domaine-clerget.com/en/index.php' title='Appellations Bourgogne, Volnay, Pommard, Beaune (pinot noir) et Meursault (chardonnay)'>Appellations Bourgogne, Volnay, Pommard, Beaune (pinot noir) et Meursault (chardonnay)</a><br> <a href='http://www.domaine-clerget.com/en/find-wines-domain-clerget.php' title='High-end retail shops and restaurants who sell our wines'>High-end retail shops and restaurants who sell our wines</a><br> <a href='http://www.domaine-clerget.com/en/appellation-millesime-volnay.php' title='Producing some of the rarest wines in the world'>Producing some of the rarest wines in the world</a><br> <a href='http://www.domaine-clerget.com/en/clos-domain-wine-volnay.php' title='Since the 13th century, in 1268,the Domain Clerget started making wines of superior quality'>Since the 13th century, in 1268,the Domain Clerget started making wines of superior quality</a><br> <a href='http://www.domaine-clerget.com/en/beaune-bourgogne-vougeot-meursault-pommard.php' title='The whole of our appellations'>The whole of our appellations</a><br> <a href='http://www.domaine-clerget.com/en/domain-yvon-clerget.php' title='visit the cellars in Volnay and give you a private tasting of his wines'>visit the cellars in Volnay and give you a private tasting of his wines</a><br> <a href='http://www.domaine-clerget.com/en/wine-beaune-1er-cru-les-reversees.php' title='Beaune 1er cru Les Reversées'>Beaune 1er cru Les Reversées</a><br> <a href='http://www.domaine-clerget.com/en/wine-bourgogne.php' title='Bourgogne'>Bourgogne</a><br> <a href='http://www.domaine-clerget.com/en/wine-clos-vougeot-grand-cru.php' title='Clos Vougeot Grand Cru'>Clos Vougeot Grand Cru</a><br> <a href='http://www.domaine-clerget.com/en/wine-meursault.php' title='Meursault'>Meursault</a><br> <a href='http://www.domaine-clerget.com/en/wine-pommard-1er-cru-rugiens.php' title='Pommard 1er cru Rugiens'>Pommard 1er cru Rugiens</a><br> <a href='http://www.domaine-clerget.com/en/wine-volnay.php' title='Volnay'>Volnay</a><br> <a href='http://www.domaine-clerget.com/en/wine-volnay-1er-cru-caillerets.php' title='Volnay 1er cru Caillerets'>Volnay 1er cru Caillerets</a><br> <a href='http://www.domaine-clerget.com/en/wine-volnay-1er-cru-carelle-sous-la-chapelle.php' title='Volnay 1er cru Carelle sous la Chapelle'>Volnay 1er cru Carelle sous la Chapelle</a><br> <a href='http://www.domaine-clerget.com/en/wine-volnay-1er-cru-clos-de-verseuil-monopole.php' title='Volnay 1er cru Clos de Verseuil Monopole'>Volnay 1er cru Clos de Verseuil Monopole</a><br> <a href='http://www.domaine-clerget.com/en/wine-volnay-1er-cru-santenots.php' title='Volnay 1er cru Santenots'>Volnay 1er cru Santenots</a><br>
