This very known soil, the vastest of Grands Crus, has a big personality. The south exposure gives generous, very dry, powerful, rich, long wines on the palate, which make miracles after some years of ageing. Les Clos always develop in an exceptional way in time, by remaining mineral and powerful.
Yellow green colour. The nose is pure, chiselled, refined, in the mineral notes (shell of oyster, slightly iodized). The mouth reveals a beautiful salinity, in the spicy and peppered notes, with a fine woody and toasted touch. A wine very distinguished, which has many elegance.
"Pale yellow. Captivating bright, pure, complex nose is dominated by iodine and powdered stone. Less powerful than the Valmur but sharply delineated, with terrific cut and depth to its saline, fine-grained lemon, mineral and iodiney oyster shell fla vors. Finishes wonderfully long and tactile, with terrific subtle perfume. Manages to be very rich without coming across as thick, in the way of the best examples of this great grand cru. This has delivered on its early promise but will require patience."
International Wine Cellar
"A spicy and mineral-suffused nose of green fruit and rose petal has now eaten all but the last vestiges of its oak treatment. The big, rich, powerful and mineral-driven flavors possess simply phenomenal length and overall, this is a knock-out effort with superb cellaring potential."
"The southern exposures of Les close built creamy richness into this wine, while the soils kept it firm and classical. It already has mouthwatering layers of flavor of pale fruit, fresh wheat and lime, while the wine overall ramains tight and austere. A grand cru of substance and depth, this will evolve for ten years or more."
