Overview

Clos Armand was planted in 1945 on soils comprised of primarily weathered gabbro – a type of coarse grained basalt found around the village of Monnières and Gorges. Later Michel’s Grandfather expanded his plantings of Melon in Clos Armand so the age of these vines ranges between 40-70+ years old. Due to the age of the vines and the terroir, Clos Armand is tends to be the richest and most voluminous of the Muscadets made by Michel Delhommeau.
