Clair; Bruno

flagBurgundy / France

This wine is medium-to-dark ruby-colored and offers floral, sweet blackberry, and perfume aromas as well as a chewy and medium-to-full-bodied mouthful of dark plums and black cherries that linger on its admirable finish. It should be at its peak between 2000 and 2004.||Bruno Clair described this vintage as abundant (he says his Marsannays averaged 40-45 hectoliters/hectare and his other vineyards averaged yields in the 35-40 h/h range) and perfectly healthy as not a trace of rot was spotted. He went on to say that his '96s have as much as 4 grams per liter of acid, the highest level he has ever seen in Burgundy. Wine Advocate.August, 1998
