The Highly Anticipated Domaine Bruno Clair

Bruno Clair-banner

Pure Burgundy brilliance, Domaine Bruno Clair has arrived at the doors of Cellarmaster Wines. These wines are decidedly delicate yet with serious structure and get the big points from Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate. Founded by Bruno Clair in 1979 the Domaine is one of the most celebrated in all of Burgundy.

With a family wine history dating back to 1919 the Clair wine legacy began when Bruno’s grandfather Joseph purchased a small Domaine in Marsannay, in time becoming one of Burgundy’s greatest Estates, the Domaine Clair-Daü.

Unfortunately this grand Estate was dismantled due to family disputes in the early 1980’s with Bruno’s siblings and father Bernard leaving to Bruno the remnants of this once magnificent Estate.

In 1979 Bruno establish the now thriving Domaine Bruno Clair with the aid of master oenologist Phillippe Brun. Together they produce some of the world’s best Burgundy’s, “We taste and decide together. We sometimes disagree but we never fight.” ~ Bruno Clair.

Built on a good organic foundation these wines have what Bruno refers to as structured elegance and are the result of beautiful and graceful winemaking. “Superb wines are made here. (…) One should buy and try them, from the bottom of the range up.” ~ Anthony Hanson MW

Bruno Clair Morey St DenisDomaine Bruno Clair Morey St-Denis rouge En la rue de Vergy 2010

With the vines planted directly on calcareous bedrock this Pinot Noir does remarkably well, producing a wine of low acidity and giving the wine round and silky characters with great aging potential. 97 ROBERT PARKER points

With class and pedigree this wine radiates layers of dark red cherries and sweet spices with mint and floral notes adding complexity. The finish is a touch firm yet well balanced. Already pleasant and elegant they can be enjoyed now or stored for up to 10 years. 91 ROBERT PARKER points

Bruno Clair GC Clos FontenyDomaine Bruno Clair Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos du Fonteny 2010

Strikingly beautiful this wine shows finesse and elegance with sensual layers of fruit, deep spicy notes and a complex finish. The Clos du Fonteny has power and longevity and should see this wine develop nicely over the next 5-10 years.

The characteristics of this wine lie in the unique capacity to combine good maturity and acidity. This high-class wine exhibits elegance, minerality and power. Always a wine to keep, it requires 5 to 7 years of ageing to reach the aromatic complexity worthy of a Grand cru. 94 ROBERT PARKER points

Bruno Clair GC Les C#60DD5CDomaine Gevrey-Chambertin 1er cru Cazetiers 2010

A wine of low acidity yet with complex silky tannins and a surprising richness which displays pure, intense and rolling flavours of red cherry, raspberry and masculine spicy notes on the palate. This wine has a long and balanced finish that will develop over the next 5-10 years. 94 ROBERT PARKER points
