Les Clos Perdus Le Blanc 2011

les clos perdus blanc

Paul Old and Hugo Stewart’s Les Clos Perdu makes some really interesting wines from biodynamically managed vineyards across promising terroirs in the Languedoc and Rousillon. This is a varietal Macabeo from 60 year old vines grown in the Agly valley, Roussillon. It’s fermented half in stainless steel and half in wood. It’s not expensive (mid-teens GBP).

Les Clos Perdus Le Blanc 2011 Pays des Cotes Catalanes, Roussillon, France
13.5% alcohol. Complex white with grapefruit, tangerine and apricot fruit characters as well as hazelnut and toast. Fruity and savoury at the same time, combining richness and freshness. There’s a hint of Sauternes to this, with nice texture too. 93/100 (UK agent Indigo Wines)
