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 16-acre domaine at the entrance of Vosne-Romanée. A pioneer in organic farming before the term was part of everyday vernacular, his grandfather never used chemicals or potassium fertilizers, preferring to use manure from his cattle. Some 95% of the vineyards are planted in traditional Pinot Noir Fin, using an old practice of hand-selecting cuttings from the very best vineyards. The average vine age is 55–70 years, earning the label “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.
Martine’s Wines is the appointed importer for Bruno Clavelier in all of the United States with the following exceptions: CT, DC, IL, NJ, NY.
