One of the top Premier Cru sites of Saint-Aubin situated directly behind the Grand Cru hill of Montrachet and below Les Murgers des Dents de Chien, another top vineyard of Saint-Aubin. The plot is very chalky and faces due southwest. Vinified and aged entirely in oak barrels (20% new). The wine is aged for 10-15 months before bottling, depending on the vintage characteristics. This is the height of Saint-Aubin terroir, opulent and complex with the potential of developing in a cellar over the next 5+ years. 1,500 bottles annual production
The Domaine Françoise et Denis Clair was created in 1986, at first it was only stretching over five hectares of Pinot Noir in the district of Santenay. As years passed the Domaine expanded, (buying and renting parcels of Chardonnay) mainly in Saint-Aubin, where Françoise was born and where the winery is located. Now Jean-Baptiste, the son, is working on the domaine.
