  • Beautifully balanced with typical soft overtones of toasted hazelnuts.

Brief Description

This is an archetypal white Burgundy and for us is the Holy Grail - great white Burgundy at a very affordable price. Bruno Clair is a vigneron adopting an approach that involves back-breaking vineyard work and minimal intervention winemaking, using a mixture of large old wooden foudres and smaller barriques for the long slow ageing process. New oak, though used, is kept relatively low - rarely going above 40% even for the Grands Crus. There is no doubt that Bruno Clair have upped their game over the last ten years and have well and truly broken into the league of top estates in the Côte de Nuits.

Tasting Note: An immediate pleasing nose of baked bread, leads to a superbly balanced, mid-weight palate with lightly toasted almonds and white peaches developing into a buttery smooth finish. Forget Chablis, at this price, we haven't found better.
