LOUISON ET LÉOPOLDINE Second wine from Clos Louie 2019 bottle 75cl

Started in 2003, the Clos Louie adventure is a textbook case: a dolly vineyard (2.3 ha) on a beautiful clay-limestone terroir of Castillon, careful biodynamic cultivation, double manual sorting during the harvest, low-intervention vinification, gentle maturation in 500-litre demi-muids.

Louison et Léopoldine is the other Clos Louie wine, a tribute to Cabernet Franc (80%) from 50-year-old vines. Clean, bright fruit and remarkable aromatic freshness: a real nugget!

    Started in 2003, the adventure of Clos Louie is a textbook case: doll's vineyard (2.3 ha) on a beautiful clay-limestone terroir of Castillon, very old vines (150 years old!) mostly Merlot and red tail malbec, careful biodynamic cultivation, double manual sorting during the harvest, little interventionist vinification, gentle maturing in 500-litre demi-muids. A true artist's wine, absent from the guides but that informed amateurs know well.

    Rated 91/100 by Jean-Marc Quarin « Moelleux à l’attaque et de suite savoureux en milieu de bouche, le vin évolue sur un corps fondant et bien présent, avec beaucoup de goût, vers une longue finale sans angle. C’est incrachable. » (Oct. 2020)
