***98 Points ‘Exceptional’ – Decanter Magazine, June 2017***

‘This 74-hectare domaine is run by four brothers – Denis, Jean-Paul, Laurent and Pascal. The 2012 Clisson came from a 1ha parcel of 67-year-old vines planted on sand above granite. The 2012 was the first vintage of this cuvée with extended lees ageing; subsequently it has been made in 2013, 2014 and 2015. This vintage was fermented and aged in underground vats for 48 months with lees stirring twice a year – in spring and October before the start of winter.’ – Decanter Magazine, June 2017.

 

‘A softly textured style with an exquisite harmony between rich, ripe fruit and precise, fresh acidity, allowing for its long finish. This is a great advertisement for its genre.’ – Jim Budd, Decanter Magazine, June 2017.
‘A subtle yet serious mineral nose augmented by notes of oyster shell. Weighty in the mouth with a pronounced thrust of minerality yet it maintains a very relaxed, bright and elegant poise throughout. Impressive and imposing.’Chris Kissack, Decanter Magazine, June 2017.

 

 

‘A well-defined, concentrated nose welcomes a palate with an alluring harmony between the creamy lees, citrus intensity and the stony influence of the vineyard’s granite soils. This has a real sense of place and is a joy to drink too.’ – Ben Llewelyn, Decanter Magazine, June 2017.
