Fete du Bourgogne: Domaine Coquard-Loison-Fleurot 2021

Fete du Bourgogne

Coquard-Loison-Fleurot has been on quite a journey. A few years back, one could find wines from the domaine in Beaune’s local supermarkets…Things have changed, however, and dramatically: The Coquard-Loison-Fleurot wines are now much sought after in most of the world

– Steen Öhman / Winehog

Today’s instalment of our Fete du Bourgogne represents one of our greatest wine-buying coups of the year to date: scoring a magnificent parcel, from one of the brightest stars of the young generation, in the tragically short 2021 vintage.  Coquard-Loison-Fleurot, under winemaker Thomas Collardot, is the real deal and the wines deliver on their considerable hype.


Domaine Coquard-Loison-Fleurot is the classic example of an ‘upside down’ Burgundy estate.  The familiar pyramid structure with a broad base of generic and village wines, rising to a small clutch of Grand Crus at the peak, is turned on its head as CLF boasts six different Grand Crus to its four village wines.   


In the diminutive 2021 vintage the topsy-turvy structure of the domaine is further emphasised as Thomas lost a full 50% of his Bourgogne Rouge and village wines, yet was only down about 30% in his Grand Crus.

2021 is a very good vintage for the domaine and there are a number of excellent choices

Domaine Coquard-Loison-Fleurot offers a fine line-up of lively and energetic wines from 2021
– Steen Öhman / Winehog


We are thrilled to feature the Coquard-Loison-Fleurot 2021s in our Fete du Bourgogne.  


Sometimes we taste wines from heavily hyped up-and-coming estates and am left with a sense of the emperor’s new clothes – there isn’t actually much wine (of interest, at least!) beneath all the hype.  This is absolutely NOT the case with Thomas Collardot’s range.  


Coquard-Loison-Fleurot is the real deal, delivers on the hype, and we are delighted to recommend the wines to you.


The Offer:
Offered subject to remaining unsold & may be subject to allocation.  Available in Singapore in Q3 2023.

Exceptionally, for this offer, purchase volumes are unrestricted – except for the Clos St Denis and Grands Echezeaux.  We do request customers to maintain an order ratio of 1:1 of Bourgogne Rouge / village wine to Grand Crus.  For example, 1 case (1×6) to 3 bottles each of Clos de la Roche and Echezeaux.

Bourgogne Rouge 2021

$360 per 6 bottles (w/ GST $388.80)

Super-fresh and quite pretty aromas of various red berries give way to delicious and energetic lighter weight flavors that conclude in an inviting, highly refreshing and saline-suffused finale. This isn’t dense but it is well made and a wine that should reward 2 to 3 years of keeping.

86-89pts – outstanding – Allen Meadows / Burghound


The Bourgogne Rouge is a nice introduction to the rest of the tasting. Fresh and vivid, it shows good acidity and gives a red-fruit impression. From Flagey-Echezeaux vineyards below the Clos de Vougeot, this is stylish. It won’t blow you away in amazement, but it will give you pleasure.

86-87pts – Steen Öhman / Winehog


Morey Saint Denis 2021

$660 per 6 bottles (w/ GST $712.80)

A much earthier and more deeply pitched nose reflects notes of plum, dark currant and a whiff of red pinot fruit. There is better volume and richness if not the same refinement to the nicely textured and persistent finale that gradually reveals a touch of austerity.

88-91pts – Allen Meadows


No whole bunches here, with 25% new wood for the elevage. A little deeper in purple than the Chambolle, with a fine dark raspberry fruit. Drier wood tannins behind but they will integrate as there is a very adequate level of fruit. Plenty of energy to finish. Drink from 2025-2030.

89-91pts – Jasper Morris MW / Inside Burgundy


Gevrey Chambertin 2021

$720 per 6 bottles (w/ GST $777.60)

Discreet wood frames the layered blend of red and blue pinot fruit that is cut with hints of the sauvage and freshly turned earth. There is a bit more volume to the almost painfully intense flavors that also possess a sleek mouthfeel thanks to the relatively fine-grained tannins shaping the youthfully austere, lengthy and balanced finale. This is an excellent villages.

89-92pts – outstanding – Allen Meadows


Four barrels made from a crop reduced by hail before the flowering as well as frost. Pretty pink purple. Perhaps a lighter fruit on the nose, pretty strawberry fruit, very accessible, even a touch of sucrosity. Drink from 2024-2028.

88-90pts – Jasper Morris MW


Chambolle Musigny 2021

$780 per 6 bottles (w/ GST $842.40)

An equally pretty and fresh nose combines the cool essence of red cherry with soft spice and floral nuances. The wonderfully sleek and refined flavors possess excellent punch while exuding apparent minerality on the stony, balanced and lingering finish. This very ‘Chambollesque’ effort is worth considering.

89-91pts – outstanding – Allen Meadows


One third has been matured in new wood, with 15% whole bunch vinification. Energetic purple, with a lively fruit. Certainly there is plenty of fresh red fruit up front, strawberry and light raspberry, a little bit drier on the palate with quite good length. Refreshing. Drink from 2024-2028.

88-91pts – Jasper Morris MW


Vosne Romanee 2021

$780 per 6 bottles (w/ GST $842.40)

An overtly spicy nose mixes aromas of red and dark currant, exotic tea, anise and a pretty violet top note. Here too there is fine mid-palate volume to the delicious medium-bodied flavors that possess very good density while delivering excellent length on the balanced finale. This could use better depth, but a few years of bottle aging should prove beneficial.

89-92pts – outstanding, top value – Allen Meadows


The Vosne-Romanée village is, due to the ’21 weather circumstances, the wine of the vintage. The 1er cru Beaux Monts was not bottled, and 140 litres of it found its way into the Vosne village. This produces a rich, brilliant, and perfumed wine. The cuvee in 2021 comes – aside from Beaux Monts – from the terroirs Les Violettes, Quartiers de Nuits, and Maizieres Bas. Very juicy and energetic, this is a sexy wine!

91/100 – Steen Öhman



Clos Vougeot Grand Cru 2021

$1,080 per 3 bottles (w/ GST $1,166.40)

Grand Crus to be purchased 1:1 with Bourgogne / village wines

An admirably discreet application of wood easily allows the fresh, cool and bright aromas of essence of red cherry, raspberry and earth to be appreciated. The plump yet intense larger-scaled flavors flash focused power on the sneaky long, balanced and youthfully austere finale. This will need moderate patience if a bit less than usual.

91-93pts – Allen Meadows


15% whole bunch vinification with half aged in new wood. Glowing fresh purple. Quite heady on the nose, ripe fruit. Very solid, more a blood red fruit than anything darker, fills the mouth very well. Long balanced finish, there is plenty here for the long run. Drink from 2027-2034.

93-95pts – Jasper Morris MW


Charmes Chambertin Grand Cru 2021

$1,080 per 3 bottles (w/ GST $1,166.40)

Grand Crus to be purchased 1:1 with Bourgogne / village wines

Here too the wood is nicely subtle if more apparent with the earthier and sauvage-inflected red berry fruit aromas than is the case with the Clos de Vougeot. The sleek, intense and beautifully detailed flavors possess a relatively sophisticated mouthfeel thanks to the fine-grained tannins that shape the precise, powerful and lingering finale.

91-93pts – Allen Meadows


The Charmes-Chambertin is punchier and more extroverted, with the generous Gevrey fruit really defining the wine. It’s quite rich and demonstrative compared to the Clos Vougeot, and the energetic fruit really shows the best side of 2021.

93-94pts – Steen Öhman


Clos de la Roche Grand Cru 2021

$1,140 per 3 bottles (w/ GST $1,231.20)

Grand Crus to be purchased 1:1 with Bourgogne / village wines

An ultra-fresh and attractively spicy nose blends the essence of red cherry and raspberry with those of earth and floral wisps. The cool, intense and almost crisp middleweight flavors possess terrific delineation on the moderately austere and strikingly complex finale. This is an impressive effort for the vintage though patience will absolutely be necessary.

92-95pts – sweet spot – Allen Meadows


A fine even purple. The bouquet is much less expressive than the Echezeaux, but the density is there. You can smell the stone says Thomas. The power comes in the middle, more structured, a mineral feel and blueberry finish. Drink from 2030-2036.

93-96pts – Jasper Morris MW


Echezeaux Grand Cru 2021

$1,200 per 3 bottles (w/ GST $1,296)

Grand Crus to be purchased 1:1 with Bourgogne / village wines

A broad range of spice elements adds breadth to the various red berry fruit, exotic tea and sandalwood-scented nose. The delicious, intense and beautifully delineated medium-bodied flavors possess equally good power and fine-grained tannins on the balanced and impressively long finish. This could use better depth, but it should reasonably develop with time in bottle.

91-94pts – Allen Meadows


The 2021 Echézeaux Grand Cru, which comes from lieux-dits, has a clean and precise bouquet, gradually unfolding with quite pure black cherry and crushed strawberry fruit, plenty of crushed violet here. The palate is medium-bodied with a creamy opening. Some new oak needs to be subsumed, but there is fine weight and density, a nice countervailing bitterness that adds contrast to the creaminess on the finish. It deserves 4-5 years in bottle.

92-94pts – Neal Martin / Vinous


Clos St Denis Grand Cru 2021

$650 per single bottle (w/ GST $702)

** Maximum order 1 bottle per customer **

Grand Crus to be purchased 1:1 with Bourgogne / village wines

Here too there is a really lovely array of spice elements adding appeal to the cool nose that also displays notes of essence of red berries along with pretty floral nuances. The rich, supple and seductively textured medium weight flavors possess a more sophisticated mouthfeel on the long, balanced and youthfully austere finale. This distinctive and classy effort isn’t quite as complex as the Clos de la Roche at present though with age, that may well chance. Lovely.

92-94pts – sweet spot – Allen Meadows


The 2021 Clos Saint-Denis Grand Cru comprises two barrels this year instead of the usual three. This has a lovely open-knit, quite mineral-driven bouquet with a little more Pinoté than the Clos de la Roche. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-boned tannins, a touch more concentration here with gentle grip on the slightly creamy yet persistent finish. Bon vin!

94-96pts – Neal Martin


Grands Echezeaux 2021

$900 per single bottle (w/ GST $972)

** Maximum order 1 bottle per customer **

Grand Crus to be purchased 1:1 with Bourgogne / village wines

A strikingly layered nose combines notes of anise, clove and exotic tea with those of plum, red cherry and a hint of violet. The super-sleek, intense and again, beautifully delineated medium-bodied flavors also possess a truly lovely texture thanks to the refined supporting tannins, all wrapped in a powerful, driving and impressively persistent finish. Like the CSD, this is quite classy as well with just a bit more muscle.

92-95pts – sweet spot – Allen Meadows


Two barrels made of this glorious wine. A lifted purple ruby colour with a flamboyant nose, roses raspberries and mint. There are waves of joyful red fruit here, opening out beautifully on the palate, magically seductive, with great persistence – a really elegant long fine finish. I didn’t want to spit this out. Drink from 2030-2040.

96-98pts & 5-star wine – Jasper Morris MW
