The Michel family has been making Chablis since 1850. The family vineyard, whose vines are 45 years old on average, is located in the heart of the original Chablis terroir, on the most prestigious parcels within a radius of two kilometers from the winery.
The 25 hectares of the Domaine’s vineyards cover all four appellations: Chablis Grand Cru, Premier Cru, Chablis, and Petit Chablis. The Domaine makes three Grand Crus (Grenouilles, Les Clos, Vaudésir), as well as seven Premier Crus.
Each vineyard is managed individually, with its own regime of pruning, leaf pulling, green harvest, cover crops, and tilling designed to maximize vine health and help express the site. Fermentation takes place with indigenous yeast only.
In the 1980s the family decided to stop using barrels for wine maturation switching to stainless steel tanks which are totally neutral and allow the expression of complexity and pureness of the aromas, respecting the authentic taste of true Chablis, without any artificial wood.
Bruno Clair has founded the domain which bears his name in 1979. Apart from Marsannay where it is based, the domain of 24 hectares includes many other appellations such as Chambolle-Musigny, Vosnes Romanée, Clos de Bèze, and Clos St-Jacques. With regards to viticulture, Domaine Bruno Clair believes in the total absence of chemical fertilizers, the exclusive use of compost, and in plowings and harrowing the soil throughout the year. Grapes are partially destemmed and alcoholic fermentation uses indigenous yeasts exclusively. The wines are aged in oak barrels. The percentage of new barrels used varies from 20 to 50 %, according to the vintage. Bottling is carried out after a period of maturation which may be from 16 to 22 months.
The domain is managed by Eric Rousseau, with the help of his daughter Cyrielle. It has expanded over the years and today covers more than 15 hectares including 8.52 hectares Grand Crus, situated in Gevrey Chambertin and Morey-Saint-Denis.

The domain produces 11 different wines averaging 63,000 bottles a year. Among the appellations of the domain are Ruchottes-Chambertin Clos des Ruchottes (Monopole), Clos Saint-Jacques (most important share of this appellation with 2.21 ha), Chambertin Clos de Bèze and Chambertin.

Thanks to a destemmer especially designed for the estate, in 2008 for the first time the Domaine produced wine from entirely destalked whole grapes.
