Location

This clos is located in the heart of Fuissé. A 2 hectares vineyard on a soft slope East oriented.

Vineyards' age

One third was planted in 2006, one third in 1986 and one third was planted in 1956.

Soil

Limestone marls from the Dogger bank.

Vinification and maturing

Fermentation and aging take place in barrels : 1/3 in new barrels, 1/3 in one year old barrel and 1/3 in 2 years old barrels during 9 months. Aging is then fully accomplished in stainless steel tanks on lies during 5 months.

Tasting

Velvety and expressive, this Clos des Prouges develops aromas of fern and particularly oak moss. It is rather rich : a charasteristic signature of the Fuissé wines. It is remarkable for its mouth feel, roundness and is overall a fleshy and juicy wine.

Wine and food pairing

Snail pastry, veal chop with sauce, goat cheese and all sorts of cow's milk hard cheese.
