Justerini & Brooks Tasting note

Bruno Clair, Gevrey Chambertin, La Petite Chapelle, 1er Cru, 2005

A Gevrey-Chambertin that is all about finesse, very pretty floral qualities, juicy red berry and cherry fruits, notes of damson. Elegant and seductive with an underlying power..

ABV:
13%
88-91/100
Stephen Tanzer, Vinous

Good deep red-ruby. Expressive, perfumed aromas of black cherry, licorice, minerals and crushed rocks. Dense, fresh and strong, with a stony character and excellent purity to the blackberry and violet flavors. Has the guts to support its firm tannins. Finishes with noteworthy aromatic persistence and plenty of personality.

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.
