Clos de Tavannes and Clos de la Comme vie for pre-eminence in the Clair cellar each vintage, with Comme perhaps recalling Volnay, where Tavannes is closer in style to Pommard. This Tavannes has a beautiful, clear ruby colour, with most appealing, ripely spicy aromas. Palate is richly built and opulent, with abundant, fully-ripened tannins and splendid length. This is a serious wine, demanding bottle-age to reach aromatic complexity and smoothness (for drinking 2020-2027+).
