This is our newest terroir, and we believe it will be our best. We bought this plot, which had been abandoned since the phylloxera crisis, for less than 800€ … The clos, surrounded by a dry stone wall nearly two metres high, was originally owned by the Abbey of Cluny. It took us nearly ten years to get the land ready for planting: we had to prepare the soil and adapt the vineyard to tractor use, all the while ensuring we kept all the walls! We wrote a fictional version of the story of the clos in the graphic novel "Un Grand Bourgogne Oublié" (as yet only available in French). We started replanting the vineyard in 2011, and in 2015 produced the first vintage. It is already as mineral and complex as Les Perrières, and will no doubt be an exceptional wine in years to come.
