Allen Meadows writes: "This 22 ha estate is directed by Pierre Bart and his uncle Martin along with Pierre's mother and aunt. Martin is a cousin of Bruno Clair because Martin's mother Monique was the sister of Bruno and thus part of the Clair-Daü family. This explains why there are holdings in Bonnes Mares, Chambolle and Clos de Bèze as well as in Santenay (the family is related, though distantly, to Denis Clair of Santenay). With respect to the 2017 vintage, Pierre Bart explained that 'we enjoyed a relatively calm growing season where we really didn't have much drama and certainly much less than was the case in 2016. Yields were generous and thus it was necessary to wait to pick and we did not start until the 12th of September...The fruit was mostly clean, which is to say there was a bit of sorting for berries that were not fully ripe and a bit of rot that developed due to the fact that we waited to pick. Potential alcohols were varied and came in between 11.8 and 13.2% though acidities were on the lower side but even so, we didn't touch them. We used between 15 and 30% whole clusters and it was necessary to push the extractions somewhat to obtain the intrinsic material. As to the wines, they're on the lighter side but this is not to say light because they do not lack for flavor authority. They're built for mid-term cellaring and they remind me of slightly structured 2014s.'"
