Gault et Millau - 2011
Since 1987 FranÃ§oise and Denis Clair have worked their 14 hectares of vines essentially
located on the appellations Saint-Aubin and Santenay. Constantly improving, the domaine is more and more reknowned.
The red wines often offer a very nice aromatic definition.
Back to the press review
Bravo for the crisp of a full and generous vintage. A wine that is delicious, slightly acid and long,
but charming with its spicy and warm flavours on the finish.
Magnificent wine, raced, with almond, chestnut, buttery and then iodized notes. It expresses itself
on a great length. The apparent thinness quickly gives way to the power of the vineyard. Very deep and ample.
This Saint-Aubin develops roasted pop-corn notes with a lot of freshness caused by
the mineral nunaces of the terroir. On the palate, the balance is very good despite the presence of the
ageing that will attenuate in two years.
This Saint-Aubin has the race and personnality of vintage wines from Puligny Montrachet.
The palate is long, creamy, slighlty toasted, freshened by the minerality that makes the grandeur of this
appellation. Bravo !
A remarkable precision for a very racy Santenay with a rich but never heavy fruit.
This wine seems velvety, powerful and ample but also floral and delicate. A magnificent marriage between
power and freshness.
Rich nose with red fruit aromas : Morello cherry and raspberry. The palate is dense, fruity and
elegant. One spends a nice moment with this wine, even in its tasty length.
A real fruit bomb where a juicy wine shows, with cherry and cassis aromas. The palate is
deep and dense, with soft tannins. A lot of pleasure.
