Situated between the winery building and Fuissé’s old church, the Le Clos parcel is 1.65 acres, and one of few parcels to enjoy an exposure to the east. Half of its vines are 20 years old, while the other half are at least 40 years of age. They grow on a thin topsoil covering limestone and shale. The wine is fermented in oak barrels and sees significant barrel maturation, a part of it on the lees.
This is a powerful yet elegant wine that offers refined flavors of fresh almonds, apricots, yellow fruits and minerals. Overall it is vivacious and balanced, with an exceptional, intense finish.
Grilled or poached fish in a cream sauce, lobster, crayfish, turkey, poultry and soft, creamy cheeses.
