harvest note

This was a somewhat turbulent growing season. Lack of soil moisture and a poor fruit set diminished the harvest volumes.

tasting note

Opulent notes of candied pear, wet straw, damp earth and ground coffee surround the soft and subtle mouthfeel.

food pairing

Le Clos Blanc pairs nicely with full seafood (tuna, salmon, scallops) or with chicken either roasted or in cream sauce.
