Based in Marsannay, Domaine proves a reliable producer of high-quality charmers from this appellation. Burghound's Allen Meadows provides a nicely detailed profile of the estate's background and methods: "This 22 ha estate is now directed by Pierre Bart and his uncle Martin along with Pierre's mother and Martin's sister. Martin is a cousin of Bruno Clair because Martin's mother was part of the Clair-Daü family. This explains why there are holdings in Bonnes Mares and Clos de Bèze as well as in Santenay (the family is related, though distantly, to Denis Clair of Santenay). Pierre explained that not much has changed in the approach since my last visit in the early 2000s. The harvest is accomplished manually and then sorted. The fruit is cool macerated for about 7 days and then sees a roughly two week cuvaison thereafter using a small percentage of whole bunches and indigenous yeasts. While there is some punching down, pump overs are more frequently used. The élevage typically lasts 15 to 16 months and then the wines are bottled, usually without fining or filtration. New oak can vary from none to as much as 60% for the grands crus." (1/2013)
