This Clos is located in the heart of Fuissé. A 5 acre vineyard on a soft slope with east orientation, the soil contains limestone marls. A third of the vines were planted in 2006, a third in 1986 and a third in 1956. Fermentation and ageing took place in barrels: a third in new barrels, a third in one year old barrel and a third in 2 years old barrels over 9 months. Ageing is then finished in stainless steel tanks on lies over a 5 month span.

About the Grape
