Situation: Le Clos is a gently sloping single parcel that faces east. It is located between the house of Domaine Ferret and the village church. This parcel, the smallest among those that produce the Têtes de Cru and Hors Classe cuvées, covers 0.69 hectares right next to the domaine's buildings.

Age of the vines: Half the vines are just over 30 years old, while the rest are approaching their 50th birthday.

Soil: These deep sandy loams are derived from sedimentary clays and don't contain any stony material. The bedrock features seams of limestone and marl-limestone.

Vinification: Fermentation and maturation took place in barrel, of which 20% were new and 80% are 2nd, 3rd and 4th use. Maturation lasted 10 months, then the wine spent eight months in stainless steel tanks on fine lees before being bottled during a sunny week just before the start of spring.

Tasting: Although its nature tends towards an easy-going charm, in this vintage 'Le Clos' is more refined and mineral than usual. With its linear, crystalline palate, this pure-fruited wine will benefit particularly well from extended ageing in bottle.

Food pairing: Grilled or poached fish with creamy sauces, lobster, crayfish, snails in puff pastry, chicken with truffles and creamy cheeses.
