Anne-Claude Leflaive and Christian Jacques purchased Clau de Nell in 2008; Sylvain Potin joined the team as estate manager in 2009. The property is comprised of 10 hectares (24.7 acres) of vines on a gently sloping hill surrounded by open countryside. The highest point of Clau de Nell offers a glimpse of the Loire in the distance; from here, an uninterrupted view unveils the sky and the river on the horizon, as well as rows of Grolleau, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chenin Blanc.

Tasting Notes

Biodyamically grown on grés and red silex. A fresh and straight wine, with notes of white and yellow fruits and acacia flowers. A buttery, lightly toasted side is revealed, then supported by a mineral acidity due to the terroir which defines the balance of the wine.
