So, I was sceptical when I first heard about David Clark and his Au Pelson vineyard on the wrong side of the N74 (see map below). However, this is bourgogne with a difference.
Having definitely 'cracked' bourgogne, David Clark has set his sights on acquiring better vineyards on the Cote d'Or. Indeed he has already bought plots in, amongst others, Morey-Saint-Denis and Vosne Romanee. I only hope that any further acquisition is not funded with proceeds from the sale of Au Pelson, as was the case for Christophe Roumier when he sold the vineyard to David in the first place. I look forward to the delivery of my Au Pelson 2007 bought en primeur and to enjoying many more vintages of this wine and, if I'm rich enough, I might even dabble in his Morey-Saint-Denis and beyond.
