Additional Information

Clos du Papillon is a small valley at mid slope, beautifully southwest exposed to the Loire light: There are schists, rhyolites but also quartz. The top soil layer is very shallow (60 cm) which provides excellent drainage for rainwater. The climate in that parcel allows waiting for a level of highly advanced maturity. Harvested in several sortings, then vinified in 400L french oak barrels and aged for 12 to 14 months.
