"Reserved, private and soft-spoken, Bruno Clavelier prefers to let his wines speak for him. And they do, telling a story of great elegance, purity, and depth.

Bruno succeeded his grandfather at the family’s six-and-a-half-hectare domaine in the heart of Vosne-Romanée. The wines were sold to negoçiants until 1988, when Bruno decided to estate bottle their wines. A pioneer in organic farming long before it was common, his grandfather never used chemicals or potassium fertilizers. Bruno now farms using biodynamic principles and has been certified since 2005. Some 95% of the vineyards are planted to traditional Pinot Noir Fin, using an old practice of hand-selecting cuttings from the very best vineyards, and yields are naturally low. The vines were mostly planted in the 1930s and 1940s, earning the designation of Vieilles Vignes for most of the wines.

A gifted fifth-generation vigneron, Bruno’s delicate touch produces some of the best, most refined wines in Burgundy." - Importer Note
