Marsannay Bruno Clair Les Vaudenelles Burgundy

Marsannay Bruno Clair Les Vaudenelles Burgundy

€66.95
 

The deepest, most perfectly-formed Vaudenelles we can remember tasting. Typically crisp and fresh with crunchy fruit notes of plum and cherry, yet with more underlying power and structure than usual. It has a depth and flesh to counteract the racy forest berry and stony mineral flavours. Marsannay of ripeness and verve. Fermented with 30% whole bunches and aged in predominantly used oak barrels.

Description

Les Vaudenelles is another one of Bruno Clair’s high altitude gems. It is the most delicate of his Marsannay lieux-dits and very much a child of its terroir and position. The shallow, light-colored soils produce a wine of fragrance rather than weight, and the altitude keeps it remarkably fresh. We suggest enjoying this wine young, as there is not much tannic structure. A bit of cellaring will reward you with more weight, but we love it young, light, and crunchy.
