Tasting notes:
‘There is a distinct coolness to the reserved and airy nose of herbal tea and the essence of red currant aromas where a hint of the sauvage eventually emerges. The supple, round and delicious middle weight flavors possess an appealing vivacity along with solid length on the dusty, compact and quite serious, indeed even slightly austere, finish. 2029+.’ – Allen Meadows, Burghound, 91/100

The 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Cazetiers 1er Cru has a fragrant bouquet of rose petal, red cherry and strawberry. The palate is very well balanced, with wonderful Pinoté, but just needs a few more months to absorb the new oak on the finish. Not bad, though not the strongest of Bruno Clair’s offerings this year. 2022 – 2036.’ – Neal Martin, Vinous, 91/100

About Domaine Bruno Clair:
Domaine Bruno Clair is perhaps the grandest under-the-radar producer in Burgundy, greatly respected by his peers and venerated by the critics, called ‘one of the best vine-growers in Burgundy’ by Sylvain Pitiot of Clos de Tart. In 1979, Bruno Clair started his own domaine with vines in Marsannay, Fixin, Savigny-Les Beaune and a fallow plot in Morey-Saint-Denis upon which he established an excellent reputation. Today, his 23 ha estate holds vineyards in esteemed appellations including Vosne Romanée, Gevrey-Chambertin and Aloxe-Corton. His top vineyards of Clos St-Jacques and Bonne-Mares rival the greats of Côte d’Or. He maintains rigorous vine selection and, while this work requires great patience, it is essential in obtaining healthy vineyards of unique quality.

‘Bruno Clair’s wines are often lighter and more ethereal than other producers’ Côte de Nuits. Gentle extraction and a portion of whole-bunch gives them remarkable poise and elegance. Watch out for the killer-value Marsannay.’ – Roland
