Le Clos is extraordinarily rich with layer upon layer of ripe apple, pair, and spice. The finish is driven by mineral with a firm gripping acidity.
The seven-acre walled vineyard surrounds the winery and château. Old vines and a sheltered situation give this wine its richness. Enhanced by the wood aging, this wine is ripe with apricots and spiced pears cut with a mineral texture. It is still young and will be much better from 2019.
It is barrel fermented and aged for 12 months, with 80% of the barrels new. Pale yellow color with an intriguing bouquet of spices, minerals, and citrus. Considerable body and structure with a fine fruit-acid balance and flavors of apples, green tea, honey, and toasted almonds.
