3 800 bouteilles produites pour la récolte 2015 de cette micro-cuvée de 0.85 hectare de vignes pre-phyloxéra âgées de 150 ans. Le nez, d'une grande profondeur est dominé par des notes de petits fruits rouges et d’épices. En bouche, Clos Louie 2015 est riche, puissant, mais absolument pas agressif, il est soyeux. La longueur est excellente et ce vin dispose d'un très grand potentiel de garde.

Description

Clos Louie was created in the year 2003 from a small plot from a family heirloom. This parcel is exceptional, because of its small size of 0.85 hectares, but especially because its vines that are 150 years old date back to the pre-phylloxeric period.

From the beginning of this adventure, Pascal and Sophie Lucin Douteau wanted to go organic to preserve the best of this rare plot.
