Domaine Bruno Clavelier Vosne-Romanee La Combe Brulee 2016 / 750 ml.

Item#: 91275

SP9292 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 15, 2019
Sumptuous, with black cherry and blackberry fruit wrapped in toasty, spice and stony mineral elements. Lively acidity and dense tannins lend support, allowing this red to age gracefully. Offers a firm, juicy finish. Best from 2021 through 2036. 8 cases imported. (Bruce Sanderson)
VN88+88–90 pts. - Vinous - Jan 2018
Bright medium red. Nose dominated by raspberry and pungent gunflinty calcaire. A step up in intensity from the Hauts de Beaux Monts (there’s no clay in this soil) but tighter and more saline in the middle palate, offering hints of flowers and olive along with noteworthy mineral tension. Finishes sapid and long. Clavelier uses cordon de royat pruning for these very old vines and because they bud later he was able to keep a bit more crop. Still, there was a good bit of millerandage and production was just 17 hectoliters per hectare.

Where It's From

Region / Burgundy

View more wines from Burgundy

In eastern France lies the region of Burgundy, one of the legendary wine regions of the world. Burgundy, home to some of the most expensive wines in the world, is famous for its Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. With very few exceptions, red Burgundy is made from 100% Pinot Noir. And the reigning white of Burgundy, Chardonnay, can vary incredibly in style depending on where it was produced within the region.

Country / France

View more wines from France

The French did not invent winemaking. They simply perfected it. For centuries, France has been producing wines that inspire poetry, awe, and wonder; wines that blur the lines between nature, craftsmanship, cuisine and art. These are the wines that inspired cultures around the globe to follow in France’s footsteps, planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Grenache, Merlot, Semillon and more.

Yet as often as they are emulated, the magic of their terroirs can never be duplicated. You may taste Cabernet from around the world, but perhaps none as elegant and regal as Bordeaux. You may try Pinot Noir or Chardonnay from various climates, but none with the earth-bound soul and ethereal reach of Burgundy.

The 2016 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Sentiers has a light, quite conservative, tertiary bouquet with touches of cedar and tobacco. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, well-judged acidity and a low-key but pleasingly precise finish that blossoms with aeration. Very fine.
VN89+89–91 pts. - Vinous - Jan 2018
Healthy dark red. Cool, slightly medicinal aromas of crushed raspberry, espresso and flowers. Dense, sappy wine with good fullness but also a cool quality to its slightly brooding red cherry fruit. Here the broad tannins are a bit dustier and less elegant than those of the Feusselottes but the finish shows good spicy, floral lift. This doesn’t quite come alive today, perhaps because it doesn’t possess quite the intensity provided by the seriously frosted parcels in 2016.
