2018 Vosne Romanée Les Hautes Maizières (CLAV11218A)
Deep clay soils give a broad, rich wine with great depth of red fruit, and a welcome floral lift from whole-bunch fermentation. The tannins are rich and balancing, and the finish has a hint of salty minerality.
2017 Vosne-Romanee Les Hautes Maizières (CLAV11217A)
Deep clay soils give a wine that is rich and rounded, and the extra lift from 50% whole bunches gives welcome energy. So we get ripe strawberry fruit, a note of Mediterranean herbs, supple tannins and plenty of freshness on the long juicy finish.
2016 Vosne-Romanée Les Hautes Maizières (CLAV11216A)
Rich, ripe, spicy red fruit with Mediterranean herbal aromas in a dense muscular package that has a fine, lingering finish.
2018 Vosne Romanée La Combe Brûlée (CLAV13218A)
85-year-old vines on poor chalky limestone soils with a high proportion of flint give fresh very perfumed spicy red fruit, more angular than the Hautes Maizières, with fine tannins and a lick of salt on the finish.
2017 Vosne-Romanee La Combe Brûlée (CLAV13217A)
Poor chalky limestone soils give fresh spicy red fruit, more angular than the Hautes Maizières, but still with good density and a long salty finish.
2016 Vosne-Romanée La Combe Brûlée (CLAV13216A)
Spicy, ripe and mineral-driven, this has appealing dark fruit and lots of bright energy to offset the considerable concentration.
2018 Vosne Romanée 1er cru Aux Brûlées Vieilles Vignes (CLAV20218A)
This hillside vineyard is south-facing, but its warmth is offset by a constant stream of cool air from the hillside just above it, resulting in energy-giving tension between warm and cool elements. For Bruno it is a tightrope walker, the rich red fruit offset by ripe but firm tannins and a mineral edge, the whole bursting with energy, and finishing long and smooth.
2017 Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru Aux Brûlées Vieilles Vignes (CLAV20217A)
This hillside vineyard is south-facing, but its warmth is offset by a constant stream of cool air from the hillside just above it, resulting in energy-giving tension between warm and cool elements. You get warmth in the form of spice, liquorice and supple tannins, and cool notes from crunchy redcurrant fruit, pointed acidity and a fresh green character, combining to make a fresh elegant whole.
2016 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Aux Brûlées Vieilles Vignes (CLAV20216A)
A very dense wine indeed this year, showing very sweet spicy fine dark fruit, supple tannins and a smooth, fresh elegant finish.
2018 Vosne Romanée 1er cru Les Beaux Monts Vieilles Vignes (CLAV21218A)
A rocky east-facing hillside vineyard with shallow clay soils gives generous, powerful and densely woven red fruit and rich tannins, but then tapers towards the middle to reveal a fine, smooth and mineral outline, and then a long elegant finish. A winter warmer.
2017 Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru Les Beaux-Monts Vieilles Vignes (CLAV21217A)
A rocky hillside vineyard with shallow soils gives a powerful wine with generous fresh black cherry fruit that gradually gives way to a fine salty minerality as it tapers to a long, very elegant finish.
2016 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Beaux-Monts Vieilles Vignes (CLAV21216A)
Not as affected by frost, so yields, though still painfully low, are more generous. This is elegant, relaxed and fine, with ripe fruit and gentle minerality running through to a long sweet/salty finish.
2018 Gevrey Chambertin 1er cru Les Corbeaux (CLAV24218A)
Les Corbeaux is in the wind corridor of the valley leading to Chamboeuf, and the grapes benefit from the freshness the breezes bring. Uncommonly, around 10% of the vines here are white – Pinot Blanc, Chardonnay and Aligoté – and harvested with the red, which adds lift to the wine. And it has a lovely energy this year: hard limestone-rich soils give very fresh red fruit, a spicy, bloody quality and firmly delineated ripe tannins.
2017 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Corbeaux (CLAV24217A)
Les Corbeaux is in the wind corridor of the valley leading to Chamboeuf, and the grapes benefit from the freshness the breezes bring. Uncommonly, around 10% of the vines here are white - Pinot Blanc, Chardonnay and Aligot? - and harvested with the red, which adds lift to the wine. It is rich and ripe, with a typical note of iron, blackcurrants, liquorice, and a smoky spicy edge, as well as fresh mint on the long finish.
2016 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Corbeaux (CLAV24216A)
Les Corbeaux is in the wind corridor of the valley leading to Chamboeuf, and the grapes benefit from the freshness the breezes bring. The wine is rich and perfumed, with a lovely fluidity and brightness aided by 50% whole-bunch fermentation. The fruit is dark and rich, the texture fine, and there are fresh spices on the long finish.
2018 Corton Le Rognet (CLAV40218A)
A rich wine, packed with seductive juicy red fruit offset by dense fine tannins. There is a softness to it, a charm that lasts all the way to a complex dark stony finish.
2017 Corton Le Rognet (CLAV40217A)
Always a big wine, and this year very generous, with densely woven spicy red fruit and rich, concentrated ripe tannins. But there is delicacy and elegance here too, and a transparency to each element in the wine. The finish is vibrant and long.
