Justerini & Brooks Tasting note

Bruno Clair, Gevrey Chambertin, Les Cazetiers, 1er Cru, 2015

An engaging, seductive and pure Gevrey, all charm and brightness. Both sensual and vital at the same time, impeccably balanced. This boasts flavours of red cherry and red berry with a welcome, rather indulgent but not too decadent hint of cherry confit. A first rate Gevrey 1er Cru vineyard high up on the slope next door to Clos St.-Jacques, whilst there is a similar aromatic quality to the wines of its neighbour the taste profile is very different, with suaver, rounder fruit coming through thanks both to the plant itself, a different type of Pinot ‘massale’ selection, and the white clay soils found here in this limestone-influenced parcel in the upper-part of the vineyard.

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.
