This mythical “clos” has been farmed and harvested since its plantation by the Abbey of Cluny monks, and then by those of the Abbey of Citeaux since 962, continuing until 6 centuries later. This unique and specific area was chosen by the monks because of the environmental qualities/features: a noble abode in the intersection of two valleys at the heart of the Cote de Beaune wine region, walled in by the clos, on the banks of the Clous River which nourished the mill. Since 2008, the Andrieu family, has been dedicated to restoring the ancient values of this estate’s legendary wines. The biological and biodynamic agriculture practiced on the Domaine encourages a diversified microbial population, and allows the vines’ roots’ to take advantage of all the geological richness in the terroir.
