Domaine Françoise & Denis Clair, Les Murgers des Dents de Chien, St-Aubin 1er Cru 2013
An understated domaine from one of the best-value appellations in the Côte de Beaune. Denis Clair took over his family vineyards and created the domaine in 1986; joined by his son, Jean-Baptiste, they now own 15ha across Santenay and St-Aubin. Quite fragrant on the nose with notes of apple and pineapple. Real fruit concentration on the palate with refreshing acidity. Very harmonious.
