'Bruno Clair is now the only producer with vines on the Morey-St-Denis side of the Grand Cru, owning a total of 1.6ha. Picking started here as early as August 24th in 2018 and the result is apparent in the freshness and balance of wine. Made from a combination of red and white soils, it's a fine, floral, almost lacy expression of the terroir with added freshness and texture from 30% whole bunches and 40% new wood.' (TA) (10/2019)

'The 2018 Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru has closed down a touch on the nose, eventually revealing red fruit, violet petals and a light oyster shell note. Fine delineation and superb focus. The palate is detailed and precise, just a faint touch of dark chocolate in the background with the mineral-driven finish delivering the sapidity to tempt you back for another sip (in 4-5 years time...when it's ready.) (NM)' (10/2020)
About the Winery: Bruno Clair is the son of Bernard Clair (1920-2005) and the grandson of Joseph Clair (1889-1971), originator of the famous Domaine ClairDaü which was founded in Marsannay in 1919.
Following Joseph’s death, family disagreements led to the dismantling of the Domaine 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 Saint-Jacques, Vosne-Romanée, Clos du Fonteny and Chambolle-Musigny. More vineyards were purchased by Bruno Clair in 1993, including Corton-Charlemagne, Pernand Vergelesses and Aloxe-Corton. In 1996, Gevrey-Chambertin "Petite Chapelle" was added to bring the size of the Domaine to more than 23 hectares.
Bruno is working with his wife Isabelle and his son Edouard joined the Domaine in 2012. Very involved in the vine cultivation, Edouard is progressively converting the Domaine to organic production. In 2018, Bruno & Isabelle's second son Arthur joined the Domaine and he will work on the commercial dimension.
