Domaine Bruno Clair Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Clos du Fonteny MONOPOLE 2005

A monopoly of the domaine, this plot is located in the upper part of Les Fontenys, in the continuity of Ruchottes-Chambertin. Relatively poor soil, composed of white clay, with notable traces of limestone rock on the surface.

Born out of the old Clair-Dau estate, Bruno Clair’s wings are spread widely over the Cote d’Or, covering nine appellations in total. Bruno, first and foremost, is a vigneron and, with the help of winemaker Philippe Brun, produces some of Burgundy’s purest examples, adopting an approach that involves back-breaking vineyard work and minimal intervention winemaking, using a mixture of large old wooden foudres and smaller barriques for the long slow ageing process. The estate is renowned, in particular, for its excellent value Marsannays, stunning Gevreys and old vines Savigny Cuvees.
