2014 Bruno Clair Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Clos du Fonteny 75CL
The 2014 Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Clos de Fonteny, the monopole of the domaine, has an easy going bouquet with raspberry and crushed strawberry fruit - a bouquet reclining in its comfy armchair.
The palate is well balanced and has more vigor. I like the purity here and the candied orange peel that gives the finish that exotic touch, for those who prefer a more "daring" Gevrey. Drink and enjoy over the next 8-10 years.
Bruno Clair is the grandson of Joseph Clair, of the famous Domaine Clair Daü. He founded his domaine in 1979 in Marsannay and subsequently inherited some of his ancestor’s plots. It is an exclusively family farm which today has 25 hectares.
The vineyard is made up of a myriad of high-quality plots, notably in Gevrey-Chambertin and Morey-Saint-Denis where the wines are among the most popular in the appellation, both white and red.
