About The Winery
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 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 play their roles in the complex dialogue demanded by harmonious terroirs that are the source of the subtlety of expressive wines.
