A rich hue, with a tinge of gold. The nose is full of dried fruit, autumnal but also vibrant and firm, with notes of fennel and honey. This is a wine for the future and without doubt one that will improve and integrate over the coming years; just how long is difficult to predict, but try at least five years.

Clos Rougeard has been called the Cheval Blanc of the Loire so rich, aromatic, complex and fascinating are its Cabernet Franc reds. Expensive? Not once you taste it. Here is a description from Parker's The Wine Advocate: "The Poyeux saturates the palate with black fruit, an ore-like, ineffable minerality, and smoky, carnal depth. Very clear in fruit and striking in its mineral way, this displays abundant tannin, yet a generously juicy, satisfying finish."

Winemaker's Notes:

Sometimes referred to simply as "Clos." Young vines (for Rougeard - 25+ year-old vines) is fermented in old oak barrels. Much like the Le Bourg and Poyeux wines, Le Clos has excellent concentration and character. An excellent mineral component frames ripe berry flavors. A remarkably pure expression of Cabernet Franc that can age for up to 10-15 years.
