2020 Vouvray Le Clos
The Le Clos is Vincent’s top premium wine from his favourite vineyard that sits high on the slopes overlooking the Loire River.
This vineyard can be seen in the photo in the introduction to these wines. The yields from this vineyard with its 60 year old vines are very low at only 20 hectolitres per hectare. It is a dry white wine made entirely from Chenin Blanc grapes from the flint, clay and tuffeau soils in the Le Clos vineyard that displays notes of pear and wild peaches, a generous palate and rich fruitiness along with citrus overtones.
