Features

The Clos de Loyse creates a very individual style of Chardonnay derived from its granite soils, which lie to the south of Burgundy.

Vinification

The ‘Clos de Loyse' Burgundy is vinified in oak barrels, just like its northern cousins. The grapes are placed in the barrels straight after clarification, and there it undergoes both its alcoholic fermentation and its malolactic fermentation (either partial or full).

Maturing and bottling

The wine is matured on its lies, and undergoes regular batonnage. Of the Allier oak barrels used for this wine, 50% are new.

Tasting / Wine and food pairing

The Château des Jacques Clos de Loyse white Burgundy is a fruity wine with vanilla-tinged aromas. It is quite structured and tends to show good balance. It's the perfect match for poultry, fish, shellfish and goat's cheeses.

Conservation

Although very approachable when young, you can easily cellar this wine for five to eight years.

The Vintage

2009 was, without a doubt, the greatest vintage in living memory. Ideal weather throughout the year ensured a September harvest of perfectly ripe bunches. These were small and tight, but just the right shape to allow air to circulate, ensuring pristine health and exceptional ripening, all of which led to the creation of a perfectly balanced wine whose concentration and texture were remarkable. When it comes to ageing potential, there is little doubt that these wines will outlive us all.
