Le Clos des Fées


Languedoc Roussillon

Hervé Bizeul

Hervé Bizeul practices a ruthlessly controlled viticultural regimen focused on some 130 parcel s of selection massale vines in the dramatically rock yet clay permeated limestone environment north of Vingrau, and his pursuit of concentration and purity continues with meticulous selectivity of plot sandlots as well as of clusters and berries. Add to this a fruit-pampering vinification, and the result is wines that have turned heads every bit as much as does the local scenery and brought Bizeul well-deserved recognition as a beacon of Roussillon quality. He is so convinced of the fit between traditional goblet training and the local climate, that he is even head-pruning his young vines of Cabernet Franc, whose profusely floral, chocolaty-rich,yet refined inaugural 2008 vintage will, rest assured, be unlike any other wine from this grape that you have ever tasted. Bizeul is another of those denizens of Roussillon and the Languedoc to have imagined and now perfected a uniquely delicious style of white wine.
