Le Clos de Jeanne is a gently sloping single parcel that faces east. It is located between the house of Domaine Ferret and the village church. This parcel, the smallest among those that produce the Têtes de Cru and Hors Classe cuvées, covers 0.69 hectares right next to the domaine's buildings. Half the vines just reach 35 years old, while the rest just turn their 50th birthday.

2020 vintage
Harvest Note
The 2020 vintage was quite early, as the growth cycle commenced with a warm period in late winter which was followed by a hot and dry summer. There were a few well-timed rains which moderated the drought conditions and relieved the vines. There were no diseases to contend with and the fruit arrived in a perfectly healthy state. Despite the heat alcohol levels are quite moderate, while acidity was retained. These are wines with lovely balance, a hint of tension, and which are capable of aging.
Tasting Note
Full, opulent and charming with a note of baked brioche yet retaining precision and focus with subtle hints of lemon zest and earth.
Food Pairing
Grilled or poached fish with creamy sauces, lobster, crayfish, snails in puff pastry, chicken with truffles and creamy cheeses.
