Ripe and developed

Les Clos du Mont

Description

The parcel of land “Les Hauts des 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 ”Hauts des 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. Ageing on lees since 2005, gives this cuvee intriguing notes of dried fruit, fresh butter and caramel.
