Bruno Clair Description

The family history at Domaine Bruno Clair is quite complex, as is often the case in wine estates in Burgundy. Beginning in 1919 and proceeding forward Bruno represents the sixth generation of winegrowers.

From 1986 the estate comprised 17 hectares spread over the villages of Marsannay, Gevrey-Chambertin, Morey-Saint-Denis, Vosne-Romanée and Savigny-Les-Beaune. From 1990 they added parcels in Chambolle-Musigny, Aloxe-Corton, Pernand-Vergelesses, Gevrey-Chambertin, and Bonnes-Mares: acquired gradually – it had previously been rented. To date, the estate comprises 27 hectares across 8 villages, and produces 32 different appellations.

Today the whole family is involved: Edouard, their eldest son, Margaux and Arthur. Each of the children now has a specific role.

Decanter: 92 Points

Clair produces a lovely, consistent rosé every year, and '21 is no exception. This wine has a pitch-perfect expression of small red fruits and floral notes on the nose and a lively, crisp structure that is elegant and ethereal but does not lack presence. It is to be greatly preferred to the ocean of insipid rosé out there. Half of the grapes were macerated for over three days for structure; the other half was pressed slowly and removed from the skins. This wine is one of the great classics of Pinot Noir rosé. (Drink between 2022-2032)
