The family history of the Bruno Clair domain is quite complex and articulated, as often happens in Burgundy estates. The viticultural origin of the family dates back to the beginning of the 19th century and Bruno is the representative of the sixth generation of winemakers. His grandfather, Joseph Clair, originally from Santenay, married Marguerite Daü in 1919, who cultivated vineyards in Marsannay-la-Côte. Joseph Clair acquires vineyards in Gevrey-Chambertin (including Chambertin Clos-de-Bèze and Cazetiers), Morey-Saint-Denis (including Bonnes Mares) and Chambolle-Musigny. In 1954 the company was renamed as Domaine Clair-Dau and vineyards were gradually acquired throughout the Cote des Nuits. The Domaine as we know it today was established in 1986 and today the children of Bruno and Isabelle are also engaged in the company with their roles: Edouard, Margaux and Arthur.
Pinot Noir 100%
Produced with Pinot Noir grapes, it is a real oenological treasure. The vines, cultivated on a clayey-limestone soil with subsoils of calcaire a entroques, calcaire of Prémeaux and clayey calcaire, benefit from an ideal exposure to the east and south-east, at an altitude of 325 metres. Thanks to a careful vinification with the use of whole bunches and a long maceration in wooden barrels, the wine develops in an extraordinary way. After an aging of 18-20 months in oak barrels, of which about 35% are new
