WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING
“Bizeul ages his Pinot Noir in one-year-old Burgundy barrels from a friend's estate. The 2017 IGP Cotes Catalanes Pinot Noir Jeunes Vignes Aimer, Rever, Prier, Se Taire is a terrific, floral example of the variety, kicking off with scents of roses, raspberries and cherries. It's medium to full-bodied, with enough tannins to warrant cellaring for another year or two, finishing long and silky.”Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate
After owning a wine bar in Paris and working a few years as a wine journalist, Hervé Bizeul, a former “France’s Best Young Sommelier”, founded the Clos des Fées in 1998 with his wife. His idea was to produce a good wine for friends. The first vintage, created in his garage with very little investments, was a huge success immediately. Today, his wines are sold worldwide.
The vines span accross a number of differing terroirs accross the Roussillon, as much as 15 km apart from each other. The varying exposures and myriad of subsoils from granite to limestone make for a thoroughly unique and consistent quality. Old vines (up to 100 years old in some sectors), hand picking, … a viticultural philosophy that is respectful to nature and explains the high quality of the wines. Grenache, Carignan, Syrah, Grenache Blanc and Grenache Gris make up the majority of the plantings. The wines are aged in oak barriques for at least a year and are bottled without filtration.
