Wine Description

(2012 Vintage) With its north-east exposure, this is the last vineyard to be harvested, as we wait until the grapes on these old symbolic vines reach the apogee of maturity. With great effort on our part, we take the grapes brimming with concentrated juice to the "chai" (winery), right next door to this vineyard. A rigorous selection while harvesting, meticulous vatting with exacting checks during vinification, careful monitoring of the maceration period: everything in this "cuvée" requires the greatest of care and attention to obtain results worthy of its reputation. All the techniques used to produce Clos du Chêne Vert, are adapted to Clos de la Dioterie according to the specificities of each vintage. The maturation process is also the same. During the final blending, the discrete yeat great complexity of this rare wine is already in evidence, a wine that will reach its full expression after many long years.
