James Suckling - Clos des Etoiles 2017

In 2020, only 1,000 bottles of this outstanding wine were made. Its name stems from a family tradition – this is where we like to gaze at the starry sky on long summer nights. This is also where Philippe and François began dreaming about one day crafting the finest wine in Languedoc Roussillon. 30 years later, this label was born and named ‘Clos des Etoiles’. 

Syrah 95%, Grenache 5%

Plateau of Eocene clay-limestone pebbles studded with white stones at an altitude of 200 metres.

Average age of the vines: 35 years

The grapes are harvested by hand with the greatest care.

The vatting period lasts about 3 weeks. It is characterised by a gentle extraction that develops the aromatic complexity and structure of the future wine.

Elevage : Le jus est élevé à 100% en fûts neufs à chauffe blanche pendant 3 ans

"A brilliant deep garnet red colour with scattered red highlights. On the nose, this wine has a complex bouquet of tobacco, spices, liquorice, violets and blackberries. The palate is characterised by a velvety tannic structure brought about by the barrel ageing. The organoleptic palette is just as complex as that perceived on the nose. The significant length in the mouth of this wine allows it to be enjoyed for many seconds."
