Intro to Clos St Vincent Grand Cru St Emilion –
Clos St Vincent Grand Cru St Emilion Bordeaux France is a superb Grand Cru wine: it is well balanced with integrated tannins and has smooth, mellow fruit flavours and silky tannins with a lovely long liqourice aftertaste.
Full tasting note and wine making –
Sustainable agriculture methods have been adopted with a view to preserving the Clos Saint-Vincent’s winegrowing heritage. The property’s vines are trained using single Guyot pruning. Optimal ripening conditions are created through the removal of excess leaves and unwanted shoots and, when necessary, green harvests.
The vines have an average age of 25 years, but the oldest Merlot are more than sixty years old and the vines consist of 94% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon. Some of the plots are harvested manually. The grapes are then meticulously sorted on their arrival at the winery. Vinification is traditional in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks after which a proportion is then transferred to French oak barrels for 12 months. One third of the barrels are renewed each year.
The wines from Clos Saint- Vincent, in the Saint-Emilion Grand Cru appellation, offer a perfect example of the classic Bordeaux style: an exercise in balance, uniting the cardinal qualities of the wine in the expression of fruit and a hint of woodiness from barrel ageing.
The producer –
The property’s 17 hectares present the tightly woven fabric of remarkable, uniform terroir. A vein of gravel runs through it, giving the wines a silky quality that can be attributed to the tannins. This unusual feature is conducive to the expression of a certain precision which is reflected in the purity of the property’s wines. Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes with an average age of 25 years play their roles in the complex dialogue demanded by harmonious terroirs that are the source of the subtlety of expressive wines.
Entrusted to Saint Vincent, the patron saint of winegrowers, the tendency of the well-named Clos is to produce wines that represent the traditional Bordeaux style. Plot selection is particularly meticulous, given that some of the vines are more than 60 years old. We are dedicated to preserving and making the most of this heritage.
