“There is a distinct coolness to the reserved and airy nose of herbal tea and the essence of red currant aromas where a hint of the sauvage eventually emerges. The supple, round and delicious middle weight flavors possess an appealing vivacity along with solid length on the dusty, compact and quite serious, indeed even slightly austere, finish.”

"The 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Cazetiers has a very controlled bouquet: tightly wound, precise, almost static at the moment, but you know that everything will be released once in bottle. The palate is more expressive, featuring brambly red fruit, brown spices, clove and sage. This feels very harmonious, although it might not possess the most chiseled finish compared to others tasted from barrel. It has potential but certainly needs two or three years in bottle."
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.
