2019 Savigny-les-Beaune 1er Cru La Dominode, Bruno Clair

These are the oldest vines of the domaine, and were planted in 1902. Their concentration and complexity shows on the nose, which is chalky, floral, pretty, and spicy. The wine has so much energy, tightly coiled, and sinewy, with a pomegranate weight and floral power.

TASTING NOTES

The 2019 Savigny-lès-Beaune La Dominode 1er Cru is earthy but nicely focused on the nose. The palate is sweet on the entry with blood orange tincturing the red fruit, well balanced with a touch of orange zest and marmalade towards the finish. Very fine.

Domaine Bruno Clair

Founded by Bruno’s grandfather in the immediate aftermath of World War I, when he fell in love with a girl in Marsannay, Bruno’s father later expanded the domaine. However, when Bruno took control in 1985, the estate was in chaos. Fortunately, he has since succeeded in creating a well-organised and successful domaine in what is now a celebrated turnaround.
