The lieu-dit of Le Clos is nestled on the southern slopes of the hilltop village of Vézelay. With its steep slope from 200 to 270 meters above sea level over a span of about 250 meters, it is easy to see why this vineyard is so esteemed. Alexandre and Blandine have a small parcel of 48-year-old Chardonnay vines planted in Les Clos’ rocky, bathonian clay-limestone soils. Harvested by hand, the grapes are pressed directly into seasoned French oak barrels, where they ferment spontaneously and then rest for ten months. The wine’s brilliant color, adorned with greenish-yellow reflections, complements its precise nose, revealing hints of honeysuckle and minerals. The palate showcases a balance between its citrus notes and a precise and lingering saline finish.
