About the Domaine
Finding a new domaine in Vosne Romanée is a tough job. Every inch of this super star village has been pored over by eager wine merchants looking for the next big thing. So, when another of our growers mentioned an old friend from school who had started to domaine bottle we were excited to say the least. Happily, these wines are well worthy of their starred appellations. Prior to 2010, most of the wines were sold to négociants. Winemaker Thomas Colladot uses a 9-day cold soaking prior to fermentation of 20 to 24 days. The wines have astonishing purity of fruit and fine tannins, both given added weight from the natural concentration provided by old vines. Many of the Grand Crus were planted between the 1920’s and 1960’s. The quality that Thomas has achieved so quickly is remarkable and the future looks bright indeed for this talented young winemaker.
“With the vineyard prices going berserk in Burgundy it’s quite crucial to have top vineyards, and Domaine Coquard-Loison-Fleurot have Grand Crus almost in abundance … with holdings in Grands Echézeaux, Echézeaux, Clos de Vougeot, Clos St. Denis, Clos de la Roche, Charmes Chambertin. A rather unique collection – and great to see a talent like Thomas Colladot unfold these terroirs.”
