The wine exhibits a direct and forceful entrance on the palate, characterized by its sensual nature, showcasing the immense potential of the exceptional terroir. It is a wine of considerable complexity, possessing both power and subtlety, with a remarkable display of mineral purity that lingers on the finish. The Clos is a vineyard of 0.8 hectareswith old vines that were planted in 1904 and overlooks the Loire River. The vineyard practices include light tillage, which helps preserve the old vines and maintain a diverse range of flowers. The grapes are harvested manually in boxes and undergo sorting on a table before being vatted using a treadmill. Fermentation takes place in open cement vats with a capacity of 45 hectoliters, at temperatures ranging from 16 to 22 degrees Celsius, allowing for maximum extraction of aromas and richness. The fermentation process concludes at a temperature of 24 degrees. The duration of fermentation spans from 10 to 18 days. ABV13.5%
