Domaine Bruno Clair 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru Petite Chapelle
This is a supple, early-drinking Gevrey-Chambertin comes from vineyards that sit just below the Grand Cru vineyard, Chapelle-Chambertin and it shows in its texture and length. The roundest of the Bruno Clair wines I have had and I love it for just how sensual and gratifying, but true to Burgundian flavor and finesse it is. Only got 3 bottles.
Marsannay is a commune in Burgundy at the very northern part of Cote de Nuits, toward Dijon, and Bruno Clair is one of, if not the, most well respected and sought-after producers in the region. His winery is located in Marsannay but he sources fruit from Gevrey-Chambertin, Chambolle-Musigny, Morey-Saint-Denis, and Vosne-Romanee in the Cote de Nuits, and from Cote de Beaune in the south, Aloxe-Corton, Pernand-Vergelesses, and Savigny-les-Beaune. So, this man knows his way around Burgundian winemaking and terroir. We got a tiny allocation, like 6 bottles of this, and 3 of that, of his 2017s and they are stunning.
