The terroir of this Clos owes its particularity to its origins: the presence of a small creek tens of thousands of years ago where the soil in the creek’s bed is composed of sand and loam.
This small land parcel provides a confident, high class cuvee, straightforward and saline.
Matures over a year on fine lees in steel vats to express Chardonnay’s purity.
This wine is already delicious, but will be perfect Summer 2019 onwards.
