“(from 85-year-old vines planted on what Clavelier described as “aromatic calcaire”; harvested last in 2014): Dark medium red. Smoky, musky aromas of raspberry and underbrush lifted by flowers and minerals. Still a slight sour streak here but with more successfully integrated acidity than the Hauts de Beaux Monts; trades a bit of body and thickness for more energy and inner-mouth tension. But still shows a touch of viscosity that nicely supports its fine-grained tannins.” (Vinous)

“The 2014 Vosne Romanée la Combe Brûlée was more backward and taciturn than I expected, not quite as coalesced. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, the fruit just a little blocky at the moment that underpins what is a foursquare finish. Hopefully more flesh will develop during the remainder of it élevage.” (RP)

Bruno Clavelier makes some of the very finest Bourgognes. His wines are extremely varietal and full of finesse, showing the nuance differences between the various terroirs in a quasi-inimitable way. The wines do require several years of ageing, but your patience will be particularly rewarded. La Combe Brûlée is a high-altitude, slightly cooler plot with 85-year-old vines on strongly calcareous soil, just above premier cru “Les Brûlées”.
