Reviews of purchase Domaine Bruno Clair, Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru AOC, 2004, 1.5 L
The wine is golden brown.
Very elegant wine with a complex, well-balanced taste with juicy acidity and a refreshing mineral finish.
In the saturated bouquet of wine wonderfully combines the flavors of a blooming garden and ripe stone fruit with nuances of vanilla finish, hazelnut and honey.
This wine will be an amazing combination with cheese, seafood, fish sauce or grilled. It can be served with salads, cold cuts and poultrymeat.

In the commune of Marsannay Domain Bruno Clair owns about 11 hectares. But, unfortunately, little known wine region Marsannay, they are often overlooked, Bruno himself and his winemaker Philippe Brun complain that the consumer unknowingly overpaid five times by selecting "on appellasonu, not the manufacturer." A appellason Marsannay and is known in narrow circles of experts Burgundy, although the well-structured and fairly tannic wines are one of the best ratios of "price-quality" in all of Burgundy, they are able to develop and they should not be too young to drink - it is recommended to wait 4 -8 years. The grapes used in the production of these wines - from old vines 25-70 year olds, for whom during the year carefully looked after, plowed soil and add compost (chemical fertilizers are not used), the crop is harvested by hand and selected only those berries that have reached perfect ripeness . All these actions are performed with one goal - to provide excellent strong, dense, fine wines with good color. Bruno Clair paired with the talented winemaker Philippe Brunet create a long line of high quality wines from the "Savigny-les-Beaune - from south to Marsannay at reasonable prices - from the north."
