To the eye, our ”Les Clos” Grand Cru beautifully displays its palette of pale yellows. The blend of our two vineyard plots can be detected throughout tasting. Firstly the nose, skilfully combining the floral notes from the highest of the two vineyard plots with almond and hazelnut notes from the mid-height slope vineyard. The mouth is full and structured around an uninvasive acidity.
Les Clos, which in terms of surface area is biggest of the Chablis Grand Cru vineyards is located in the South-East
sector. We are privileged to possess two vineyards here, with a total of almost 4 acres which allows us to blend these two different and complementary characters.
The first vineyard is located at mid-slope height and benefits from slightly higher temperatures than the second which is located on the top portion of the slope, protected from the north winds by the nearby forest. The two vineyard plots once again reveals that Burgundy is the kingdom of ”terroirs”. The first vineyard plot at mid-slope
generally provides deeper, richer and fattier wines whereas the second plot produces wines with greater acidity and tension. But it is the blending of the two which will give the final complexity to our ”Les Clos”.
|The well-balanced fullness of ”Les Clos” is such that it can be drunk with a wide range of dishes, from classic Basque country-style chicken to sea bass oven-baked stew with pink Lautrec garlic. Its characteristics will equally go well with a slightly spicy cuisine: Indian, oriental and south-American.
