Grand Cru Les Clos 2017
Caisse de 6 / Case of 6
Located halfway up the slope in the heart of the appellation, the Domaine’s vineyards beneﬁt from southern exposure and enjoy optimum sunshine.
This results in wines with great power and complexity. When the monks of Pontigny began growing the ﬁrst vines in this extraordinary place they were certainly not mistaken!
Kimmeridgian. A perfect balance between limestone and clay, over marl with oyster fossils. Moderately deep soil, southern exposure, very steep slope.
No added yeast, long fermentation using indigenous yeasts, in temperature-controlled vats. Spontaneous malolactic fermentation. Matured for at least 18 months. In stainless steel tanks, with the least possible handling. Long moderately cold stabilisation. The wine is gently ﬁltered once before bottling.
Natural cork, guaranteed to be cork-free.
10 years and over.
Serve between 12 and 14°C, it must be aired or carafed before tasting.
Grand Cru Les Clos may seem austere and virile at ﬁrst. But it is actually very expressive on the palate, with dominant mineral aromas, complemented by white pepper and nutmeg notes.
