Tasting notes: A medium red robe with a nose of musky red berries, dried flowers and spice undertones. Silky and perfumed with a subtle touch of cherries and violets. Distinctive and powerful palate, persistent with a peppery nuance and a very long aromatic finish.
“This is even more aromatically reserved at present with its nose of somber red berry fruit, spice, game and earth scents that also reflect a note of herbal tea. The middle weight flavors are blessed with a high sophisticated mouthfeel thanks in part to the very good mid-palate concentration and partially to the fine-grained tannins shaping the saline and bitter cherry pit-suffused finish. Note that this too is a compact and serious wine that will need at least 7 to 8 years of bottle age to be approachable and one that should reward 15+.” Allen Meadows
Bruno Clair is the son of Bernard Clair (1920-2005) and the grandson of Joseph Clair (1889-1971), originator of the famous Domaine ClairDaü which was founded in Marsannay in 1919.
Following Joseph’s death, family disagreements led to the dismantling of the Domaine Clair-Daü in 1985. In 1986, Bruno was entrusted with the vineyards of his parents, brothers and sisters which included those of Clos de Bèze, Cazetiers, Clos Saint-Jacques, Vosne-Romanée, Clos du Fonteny and Chambolle-Musigny. More vineyards were purchased by Bruno Clair in 1993, including Corton-Charlemagne, Pernand Vergelesses and Aloxe-Corton. In 1996, Gevrey-Chambertin "Petite Chapelle" was added to bring the size of the Domaine to more than 23 hectares.
Bruno is working with his wife Isabelle and his son Edouard joined the Domaine in 2012. Very involved in the vine cultivation, Edouard is progressively converting the Domaine to organic production. In 2018, Bruno & Isabelle's second son Arthur joined the Domaine and he will work on the commercial dimension.
