An ultra-fresh nose is composed by notes of red berries, earth, cherry and a hint of wet stone. There is a lovely sense of vibrancy to the well-delineated and attractively textured medium weight flavors that also reflect the stony character of the nose on the saline, balanced and focused finale. Lovely.

Bruno Clair, originally of Domaine Clair-Daü, has an impressive and extensive estate in one of the world’s most celebrated wine regions. Twenty-three hectares of Premier Cru, Grand Cru, village wine, red, white and rose; the vineyards stretch far and wide throughout the Côte de Nuits.
Bruno Clair is the grandson of Joseph Clair (1889-1971), originator of the famous Domaine Clair-Daü founded in Marsannay in 1919. Following Joseph’s death, family disagreements led to the dismantling of the Domaine, and Bruno was entrusted with the vineyards of his parents, brothers and sisters which included those of Clos de Bèze, Cazetiers, Clos St-Jacques, Vosne-Romanée, Clos du Fonteny and Chambolle- Musigny. More vineyards were later purchased by the estate.
With regard to viticulture, Domaine Bruno Clair believes in the total absence of chemical fertilizers and the exclusive use of compost. The grapes are hand-harvested, and the selection of the best grapes is carried out primarily in the vineyards. The grapes are partially destemmed before being put into open wood vats. The wines are then put into oak barrels (20-50% new) and transferred to the cellar.
