Justerini & Brooks Tasting note

Bruno Clair, Chambolle Musigny, Les Charmes, 1er Cru, 2019

Bottled as a standalone wine for the first time in 2019 after Bruno first acquired a small plot in 2018. Having seen a full vintage under the Clair regime Charmes is now deemed ready to release as a single vineyard wine. And, wow, what a debut! So refined and classy on the nose, the 2019 mixes elegant, lacy ripe fruit with finely pitched sweet floral perfumes. Ripe red plum and apple skin combines with black raspberry and a leafy, herbal note making it an enticing wine to taste. On the palate, a little oak spice and toast is still to be subsumed but the graceful, sweet tannins and measure of the fruit with its smooth velvety texture, well-integrated alcohol and salty finish signals a great future for this new cuvee. A south easterly, stony vineyard in the heart of the Chambolle appellation.

Bruno Clair

Bruno Clair

Bruno Clair started his own domaine in 1979 with small holdings in Marsannay, Fixin, Morey and Savigny Dominode. Alongside this sat his family's Clair-Dau estate, one of the great Burgundian domaines, however following the death of his grandfather Joseph Clair family disaggreements sadly lead to its dismantling in 1985. The following year, to add to his own small domaine, 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. Bruno Clair’s wings are spread widely over the Côte d’Or covering nine appellations in total.

Bruno, first and foremost, is a vigneron adopting an approach that involves back-breaking vineyard work and minimal intervention winemaking, using a mixture of large old wooden foudres and smaller barriques for the long slow ageing process. New oak, though used, is kept relatively low - rarely going above 40% even for the Grands Crus. Edouard and Arthur Clair, Bruno's sons, are an exciting, committed new generation gradually taking over, gently introducing a few enhancements such as increased whole bunch percentages and less sulphur usage. There is no doubt that Bruno Clair have upped their game over the last ten years and have well and truly broken into the top league of estates in the Côte de Nuits.
