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

2010 took shape under normal climatic conditions; that's to say there were no notable abnormalities in the weather pattern that year. Nevertheless, average temperatures were moderate. The bunches were both ripe and well balanced on arrival at the winery. Their healthy state permitted good levels of extraction. The finished wines have shown themselves to be generously fruited, with a silky tannin structure. These wines will age well over the course of several decades.
