Domaine Bruno Clair 2017 Savigny-Les-Beaune Premier Cru La Dominode
Though the fruit for this La Dominode and the Les Jarrons technically come from the same 1er Cru vineyard the vines for this wine are significantly older as they were planted in 1902! This is a much darker, deeper wine with a fuller texture and loads of complexity. More saturated fruit that shows more power and a much longer finish. Great for cellaring. Only got 12 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 1 case of this, 6 bottles of this, and 3 of that, and there are a couple we only got a bottle of. They are truly rare and his 2017s, they are magnificent.
