Wine Advocate
Clos Henri, 2013 Clos Henri Pinot Noir

"Pale to medium ruby colored, Clos Henri's 2013 Pinot Noir offers a heady, meat and floral laced nose with touches of beef drippings and violets over the red currants and cranberry foundation. Medium-bodied and elegantly constructed on the palate, it has a chewy tannined backbone with plenty of freshness cutting through the tight-knit fruit, finishing with minerally accents."
–December 2014

Clos Henri

Following the French tradition, the entire vineyard uses high density planting on clay soils. Dry farming started in 2010, and the soils have shown their exceptional potential by stressing the vines to just the right level in order to mature fine phenolic texture. This enables the roots to explore deeper into the soil, thereby getting the purest expression of the terroir.

After hand picking, bunches are sorted and 100% destemmed before being transferred under gravity into large French oak vats with no crushing (100% whole berries). After spending one week cold soaking the berries are fermented. They look for lightextraction through gentle pump overs at the beginning of fermentation, alternating with plunging mid-fermentation. Fermentation and post ferment maceration last for three weeks. The wine is then aged for 12 months in 100% French oak barrels (25% new).
