Bruno Clavelier 2022

Bruno Clavelier 2022

This is a domaine I have been tasting and visiting for many years, though it was the first time I had been back since the pandemic. As usual, we entered his tasting room full of the various fossils and rock types strewn across the table, Clavelier demonstrating each one as we tasted through his range. I could touch and even smell the terroir from which that cuvée was born. He told me that in 2022, the véraison was a bit strung out and that he picked from August 28 to September 8. These days, he finds calculating the picking date according to the 100-day from flowering rule redundant. Instead, he accepts an 80 or 90-day growth cycle. Tasting through his wines, I was reminded of his infusive, transparent style of winemaking, his wines exuding red fruit and that essence of Pinoté not dissimilar to, say, Charles Lachaux, in the winery on the opposite side of the RN74. Indeed, you could argue that in some respects, Lachaux is following the path trodden by Clavelier, stylistically if not in terms of modus operandi. “I am not looking for colour or tannins,” he emphasizes. He is one of the winemakers who elected to bottle early, and you could argue that a second winter in barrel would not add to the style of Pinot Noir he makes. The top cuvées in Vosne-Romanée are amongst the best he has made.

The 2022 Chambolle-Musigny La Combe d'Orveaux 1er Cru comes from almost a hectare of vines. It clearly has more ripeness on the nose compared to the Les Noirots, lifted Morello cherries, crushed strawberry with more floral scents of rose petal and white flowers. The palate is very harmonious with smooth tannins, very supple and fleshier in style, yet maintaining wonderful precision on the finish. Bon vin. [Neal Martin, 11/01/2024]

A glowing ruby purple, very stylish. A thick coat of velvet covers entirely red fruit. There is a vast wealth of mid to dark red fruit on the palate, in a different league as usual. This part of Combe d Orveaux is certainly half way to grand cru. The tannins entirely integrated. [01/11/2023]

The 2022 Vosne-Romanee La Combe Brulee comes from a cooler limestone-rich microclimate. It has splendid red fruit on the nose, very well defined and just "oozing" Pinote. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannins, well-judged acidity, gaining weight towards the finish that gently fans out. Delicious already! [Neal Martin, 11/01/2024]

Anticipated maturity: 2025-2035

90-91

Jasper Morris

Made from 85 year old vines and including a few vines in Brulees itself. A paler ruby in colour, with a light cherry-raspberry nose. Notably more density of fresh red fruit on the palate, good acidity, more of a mineral style, long finish, but typically angular. [01/11/2023]

Anticipated maturity: 2028-2034

A bright pink to ruby in this sunny spot. The Beaux Monts shows a very fresh red fruit then some pepper behind. Middle weight, a little less evident than the Brulees today. More muscle, less finesse, an intensity of raspberry and cherry to finish. [01/11/2023]

Neal Martin

The 2022 Corton Le Rognet Grand Cru has a ripe and generous bouquet with dark cherries, raspberry coulis and subtle blueberry scents, hints of sous-bois and potpourri percolating through with time. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red berry fruit, a dash of cracked black pepper and cloves, leading to a nicely structured, quite elegant (for a Corton) finish. Superb. [Neal Martin, 11/01/2024]

Anticipated maturity: 2026-2045

Jasper Morris

Fine concentrated pink ruby. This does have the extra weight over and above all but Combe d Orveau, then really kicks on. Magnificent in the detail, alpine strawberry as well as raspberry, a fraction of white pepper, very complete and absolutely lovely. First picked and highest degree, but works out very well. [01/11/2023]

Anticipated maturity: 2032-2040

The holding is in the upper part of the vineyard where there is less clay, though this is still the darkest coloured wine in the cellar. The 2022 is particularly backward, with a concentrated fresh dark cherry fruit, backed both by tannins and higher acidity. Good grip, as Clive Coates would have said, but not easy to read at the moment. One for the longer term. [01/11/2023]

A bright mid purple with fresh raspberry fruit, and some strawberry notes. The perfume grows! Fresh, almost raw, but with density and a class to the fruit which is close to village standard and continues through to a long finish. Smaller yield here after hail in July. [01/11/2023]
