The Chardonnay grapes for Louis Jadot Bourgogne Blanc Clos de Loyse Chateau Des Jacques is hand harvested from a “Clos” of 9 hectares (22.5 acres) of vineyards, planted on chalky-clay soils, called the “Le Grand Clos de Loyse”. The wine is vinified in oak barrels, just like some of the grander Burgundies to the north, where it undergoes barrel fermention with malolactic fermention (either full or partial). The wine is matured on its lies, and undergoes regular batonnage in Alliers oak barrels for an average of 8 months prior to bottling at the state-of-the-art Chateau des Jacques bottling line.
Clos de Loyse is suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
