Bruno Clair 2000

Winemaker's Notes:

Always low yields and beautiful maturity of the grapes. The quality and the age of the vines contribute to this consistency. There are, naturally, annual variations according to the vintage and the weather, but the variations are fewer than in other vineyards. The color is always deep, tannins are full and rich. It is a wine that demands a few years of ageing, often more than 10 years, before it is ready to be tasted. A wine to be cellared.

Bruno Clair, founded the domaine which bears his name in 1979. The domaine at that time included plots in Marsannay and Fixin, the Dominode vineyard in Savigny-les-Beaune, and a large plot lying fallow in Morey-St.-Denis - "En la Rue de Vergy. 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.
