Ripe and developed

Clos du Mont – 2004 draught

The parcel of land “Clos du Mont”, situated on the banks of the Marne river, faces south-east and has exceptional soil. Made exclusively from one year’s harvest on this historic parcel (once belonging to the bishopric of Soissons), the Clos du Mont cuvee is vinified in oak barrels. This method of vinifying allows the aromas of creamy wood to develop slowly leaving a long agreeable length on the palate. 13 years of ageing on lees, gives this cuvee intriguing notes of dried fruit, fresh butter and caramel.
