Pinot Noir
Pee-NO NWAR
Pinot Noir is arguably the most revered grape variety in the world with origins in Burgundy, France where the best expressions can still be found. Pinot Noir is not only a tough grape to grow, it also shows miniscule differences in terroir arguably more than any other grape variety. Stylistically, it is generally higher in acid and lower in tannin but can vary depending on the location, and winemaking technique. It is very versatile with food, and shows a range of flavor from red and black fruit, floral, spice, earth, and mineral qualities.

Bruno Clair

Marsannay, burgundy

Bruno Clair is the grandson of Joseph Clair, who married Marguerite Dau to create the Clair-Dau estate, once one of Burgundy’s most celebrated domaines until family issues broke up the property and Bruno set out on his own in Marsannay.

Over time, Bruno has reconstituted much of the original domaine through rental agreements, a large portion of which are around Gevrey-Chambertin. The 23 hectares of vines are organically farmed with rigorous attention in the vineyard in partnership with oenologist Philippe Brun to make the wines. 

Bruno Clair’s wines deftly balance power and finesse with complex layers of fruit that often take some patience to show their full potential.
