description

Details of wine

Les Cazetiers is next to the Clos Saint-Jacques. Our plot is located in the upper part of the "climat" and is characterized by extremely poor, marly soil and limestone deposits. Three different dates of plantation; a third planted in 1958, another third in 1972 and the rest in 1996. The combination of the type of soil and and the quality of the vines produce low yields and grapes that are "millerandés" (partial crop failure) in the majority of the harvest. The wine is characterized by very low acidity amply compensated by complex tannins of a surprising richness. The comparison of organoleptic qualities between our Clos Saint-Jacques and our Cazetiers shows in every vintage a very clear difference between the wines: le Cazetiers being more accessible in youth on the aromatic level and by the unique silkiness of the tannins as opposed to the Clos Saint-Jacques which is more reserved in the first years. A good example of the incredible variety of the terroirs and "climates" of the Côte is that these two wines result from vines being about the same age, from the same "massale" selection, having similar maturity and vinified in the same fermenting room, according to the same philosophy

Informations

CLASSIFICATION AOC Gevrey-Chambertin
TEMPERATURE 18-20
REFINEMENT I vini sono invecchiati in botti di rovere. La percentuale di nuovi barili utilizzati varia dal 20 al 50%, secondo la vendemmia. L'imbottigliamento viene effettuato dopo un periodo di "elevamento" (maturazione) che può essere compreso tra 16 e 22 mesi.
WINEMAKING Lo schiacciamento dei grappoli aiuta a migliorare la consistenza del tappo, che si forma sul vino in fermentazione, e a prolungare il tempo di fermentazione. Se necessario, l'annata viene raffreddata e la fermentazione alcolica inizia lentamente e utilizza esclusivamente lieviti indigeni. La temperatura non supera da 32 a 34 ° C (da 89,6 a 93,2 ° F). Secondo l'intensità della fermentazione alcolica, la punzonatura avverrà da due a otto volte al giorno. Secondo il vino, il tempo di "cuvaison" (fermentazione) dura da 14 a 21 giorni. I vini vengono poi messi in botti di rovere e trasferiti in cantina. La fermentazione malolattica avviene generalmente in primavera, quando le cantine vengono riscaldate delicatamente dal riscaldamento del clima. Dopo la fermentazione malolattica, i vini vengono travasati e il loro "élevage" continua sulle fecce fini che abbiamo conservato.

PRODUCTION Bruno Clair mantiene una selezione rigorosa dei migliori vitigni di pinot nero e chardonnay, identificando quelli che producono piccole uve con perfetta maturazione. Questa selezione si concentra anche sulla ricerca di viti che hanno una buona resistenza alle malattie e sono prive di virus. Questo lavoro richiede molta pazienza ed è assolutamente essenziale per ottenere un vigoroso vigneto di grande qualità. Per quanto riguarda la viticoltura, Domaine Bruno Clair crede nella totale assenza di fertilizzanti chimici, nell'uso esclusivo del compost, nelle arature e nell'erosione del suolo durante tutto l'anno.

Joseph Clair (1889-1971) Originator of the famous Domaine Clair-Daü which was founded in Marsannay in 1919. After the First World War, the Burgundian vineyards were in a deplorable state and large areas were abandoned. Joseph Clair encouraged the wine growers of Marsannay to pull up the vines of gamay and white aligoté and to replant the vineyards in pinot noir and chardonnay, nobler types of grape varieties. He is also responsible for the creation of a rosé wine made from pinot noir, the Rosé de Marsannay, which made it possible for many wine growers to survive, and even to thrive, in those difficult times since the red wines were not selling well and selling at prices which are hardly enough to sustain the growers. Marsannay is the only Burgundian appellation to produce rosé, white and red wines Founded the domaine which bears his name in 1979. The domaine at that time included plots in Marsannay and Fixin, the Dominode vineyard in Savigny-les-Beaune, and a large plot lying fallow in Morey-St.-Denis - "En la Rue de Vergy. He is the son of Bernard Clair (1920-2005) and the grandson of Joseph Clair (1889-1971), originator of the famous Domaine Clair-Daü which was founded in Marsannay in 1919. Following Joseph's death, family disagreements led to the dismantling of the Domain Clair-Daü in 1985. In 1986, Bruno was entrusted with the vineyards of his parents, brothers and sisters which included those of Clos de Bèze, Cazetiers, Clos St-Jacques, Vosne-Romanée, Clos du Fonteny and Chambolle-Musigny. More vineyards were purchased by the estate in 1993, inlcuding Corton-Charlemagne, Pernand-Vergelesses and Aloxe-Corton, and in 1996 Gevrey-Chambertin Petite Chapelle was added to bring the size of the domaine to more than 23 hectares (56.8326 acres). Bruno Clair cultivates, harvests and bottles his wines with the assistance of André Geoffroy and Philippe Brun. Domaine Bruno Clair is a member of the Association des Domaines Familiaux de Tradition. Bernard Clair (1920-2005) Joseph's son, Bernard joined Domaine Clair-Daü in 1939 and the two formed one of the most prestigious wine estates of Burgundy, with the cultivation of more than 38 ha (93.90008 acres) of vineyards located in the finest named vineyards of the Côte de Nuits: Chambertin Clos de Bèze, Bonnes-Mares, Musigny, Clos St-Jacques, Clos Vougeot, and of a superb old vineyard in Savigny-les-Beaune, la Dominode. Bernard also made his mark in the selection and cultivation of the finest seedlings of pinot noir and chardonnay - vines of high quality and low yield - which paved the way for the wine growers of today.
