established the estate that bears his name in 1979 with vineyards in Marsannay and Fixin, a plot of La Dominode in Savigny-lès-Beaune, and a large, as-yet-uncultivated parcel in the Morey-Saint-Denis lieu-dit (vineyard site) of En la Rue de Vergy. In 1986 his parents and siblings entrusted their vineyards to him (parcels in Clos de Bèze, Cazetiers, Clos Saint-Jacques, Vosne-Romanée, Clos du Fonteny, and Chambolle-Musigny), and he made further acquisitions in 1993 (Corton-Charlemagne, Pernand-Vergelesses, and Aloxe-Corton) and 1996 (Gevrey-Chambertin Petite Chapelle) to bring the property to more than 23 hectares (57 acres) today.
Bruno Clair selects only the best young Chardonnay and Pinot Noir vines and practices lutte raisonnée, shunning chemical fertilizers in favor of composting, plowing, and harrowing the soil in all of his vineyards except those too vulnerable to erosion. All harvesting is manual, with an extremely strict selection in the vineyards. Vinification and élevage (on the lees) are practiced with the utmost care, prizing an authentic expression of the fruit above all else.
