Vosne Romanée La Combe Brûlée is produced from vines that are more than 85 years old. The wines are both refined and complex. On aeration, the flower and wild berry aromas are noticeable. On drinking, the wine offers a pleasant texture supported by the minerality specific to this climat.
Domaine Bruno Clavelier has been located in Vosne-Romanée since the end of the 18th century. Formerly a trading house of the same name, managed by another branch of the family, the house sold the wines of the domaine but was was sold in 1991. Bruno Clavelier decided therefore to abandon his career as a rugby player to devote himself to the few remaining plots and to bottle his own wine. He was initially helped by his Burgundy grandfather, Joseph and joined by his wife Valėrie in 2003. Bruno Clavelier subsequently increased his domaine to 6 hectares (with plots acquired in Vosne-Romanée, Corton, Nuits- Saint-Georges and also Chambolle-Musigny) and converted the domaine to organic farming. Some old vineyards of the domaine were planted between 1930 and 1940. Bruno Clavelier produces about fifteen excellent cuvées. It is an exceptional example, and starting to become well-known amongst lovers of great Burgundy wines.
