Bruno Clair started his domaine in the late 70’s with a small set of vineyard holdings. In 1986, he was given the vineyards belonging to the rest of the family, including some of the most coveted sites in Gevery Chambertin. Bruno believes the hardwork is done in the vineyard and the job of the winemaker is to preserve the inherent character of the grapes.
Clos du Beze is one of the lesser-known Grand Cru sites in Gevrey Chambertin, Bruno Clair produces one of the finest examples. Aromas of liquorice, red cherry and rose petals on the nose. The palate is rich and meaty but somehow remains elegant and balanced. This is remarkably fresh in spite of the warmth of the vintage – a very fine wine indeed.
