Domaine Bruno Clair Savigny les Beaune Premier Cru Dominode 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"Sweet spot outstanding: A deft touch of wood spice frames very ripe dark berry fruit aromas that evidence plenty of pungent Savigny-style earth that continues onto the dense and seductively velvet-textured medium-bodied flavors that brim with mouth coating dry extract that buffers the otherwise firm finish.

It boasts gorgeous fleshiness in its dark red fruit. Mint, freshly cut flowers and spices are some of the nuances that develop in the glass. The Dominode is ultimately about energy and textural brilliance, both of which it has in spades. I loved it. This parcel was first planted in 1902.

He is the son of Bernard Clair (1920-2005) and the grandson of Joseph Clair (1889-1971), originator of the famous Domaine Clair-Daü which was founded in Marsannay in 1919. Following Joseph's death, family disagreements led to the dismantling of the Domain Clair-Daü in 1985. In 1986, 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. More vineyards were purchased by the estate in 1993, inlcuding Corton-Charlemagne, Pernand-Vergelesses and Aloxe-Corton, and in 1996 Gevrey-Chambertin Petite Chapelle was added to bring the size of the domaine to more than 23 hectares (56.8326 acres). Bruno Clair cultivates, harvests and bottles his wines with the assistance of André Geoffroy and Philippe Brun. Domaine Bruno Clair is a member of the Association des Domaines Familiaux de Tradition.
