AOP Côtes de Bourg

Château Le Clos du Notaire 2018

€500 Flacon de 10cl

This AOC from the right bank, across from the Margaux appellation, stands out for its deep, intense garnet colour. The nose features a flicker of smokiness followed by scents of cinnamon and vanilla. On the palate, this wine is ample, with slight woody tastes of cacao that make for a highly enjoyable mouthfeel, accompanied by a pleasant liveliness.

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.
