€500 Flacon de 10cl

Château Le Clos du Notaire is a dark and intensely coloured red wine with a cherry red rim. On the nose, complex notes of black fruits mingle with spices and a touch of oak. The mouthfeel of this wine is supple, revealing a deliciously rich and fruity character with a slightly spicy finish. It’s a very nice wine which is sure to surprise.

Winemaker

Amélie Osmond et Victor Mischler

In the past, the Château was owned by a lawyer, followed by Henri Coutin, a local notaire or notary from Jonzac, who is responsible for the name Clos du Notaire. In 2015, several decades on, Amélie Osmond and Victor Mischler fell in love with the estate and decided to place their bets on the venture. The tremendous winegrowing conditions, the modern winery equipment, the location and the microclimate created by the closeness of the Gironde estuary convinced them to take the plunge. Their one goal is to allow this magnificent terroir to express itself while perpetuating the tradition of quality winegrowing and winemaking. Their philosophy is based on respect for the environment, sustainable development and, above all, dedication.
