Domaine Bruno Clavelier is an estate located in a small commune of Vosne-Romanée in the Côte de Nuits district of Burgundy. In the late 1980s after a successful rugby career, Bruno Clavelier took over from his grandfather introducing a purist approach to winemaking—introducing biodynamic farming practices and has since achieved organic certification. Domaine Bruno Clavelier’s vineyards spread along Côte de Nuits from its only Grand Cru wine, Corton Le Rognet, to its Premier Cru wines from Gevrey-Chambertin, Chambolle-Musigny, Vosne-Romanée, and Nuits Saint Georges. The Domaine’s mission is to capture the terroir of each plot and the climate of each vintage when producing its Burgundian wines.
Coming from 70 year old vines, this is a classic expression of the Les Beaux Monts climat.

"While not invisible the wood treatment is agreeably subtle and easily allows the aromas of spiced plum, red raspberry and a pretty range of floral and spice elements to be appreciated. The rich and mouth coating middle weight flavors possess both good minerality and real drive with a lovely sense of refinement to the even more complex and lingering finish. This is lovely and very Beaux Monts in character though in the same vein as the Brûlées, it's going to require at least some bottle age to unwind and further harmonize. *Outstanding* " (1/2019)
"Pretty smart and polished tannins with a lot going on. Race and freshness. Grainy tannins on the end. Really rather promising in terms of what lingers underneath. (JR) " (1/2019)
