Domaine Bruno Clair is the owner of approximately 11 hectares - 27.18 acres, on the Marsannay commune.
The soils of Marsannay are unfortunately little known worldwide and the wines too often underestimated. Because the commune does not have the prestige of its famous neighbours in the south, the wines of Marsannay are often drunk too young. Their soils give rather tannic and well-structured red wines. Waiting for 3 to 8 years according to the vintage often proves essential to maximize the qualitative potential of the wine and your pleasure.
The vines planted on les Longeroies, 1,26 ha -3.11 acres, are among the oldest of the domaine, ranging from 25 to 70 years. The wines resulting from these vines combine finesse and power to produce a very full, rich wine with good color. Less tannic in appearance than the Grasses-Têtes, they should also be cellared from 4 to 8 years to develop their optimum complexity. In the great "millésimes", their storage potential may reach 15 years.
