The origin of the name: In the 1740s the house and its attendant clos (a walled vineyard) belonged to a certain Monsieur Thirou de Saint Felix, who happened to be the Farmer General of King Louis XV. The walls of this Clos, which belongs exclusively to our domaine, form the boundaries of the parcel.
The soil is a clay limestone mix with a subsoil of gravel which lends the wine a character that is unique in the appellation. This is a wine of great finesse in which one regularly finds the scents of white spring flowers, particularly hawthorn.
It goes extremely well with fresh-water fish and should be drunk within 3 to 8 years after bottling.
Wine should be a sophisticated drink, rich but always refreshing.
