Description

Bursting with juicy red cherry and raspberry fruit with complex mineral tones, this wine is fresh, bright and a class act perfect for any time of celebration. The appellation of Marsannay is one of the northernmost in the Cote de Nuit and the only in Burgundy which produces Red, White and rose wines. Les Longeroies is a very reputable vineyard planted on poor soil, situated mid slope, and is one of the prime candidates for elevation to Premier Cru status shortly.
Bruno’s grandfather was Joseph Clair, who created (along with his wife, Marguerite Dau) one of Burgundy’s most famous domaines, Clair-Dau. This domaine was divided amongst the five children and Bruno set out on his own, with a few of his family’s plots in his hometown of Marsannay, and a few other locations. Bruno Clair’s domaine is near the hamlet of Marsannay-la-Côte in the Marsannay appellation that stretches the length of three hamlets. Delicious with game meat dishes or duck with a red fruit sauce. 13% ABV.
