The Georis Vineyard Estate crown jewel, Clos des Moutons is hand selected from a single parcel sitting on the lower river bench of the land. There, the roots of the 30 year old vines capture the minerals from the river rocks as they penetrate the deep soil horizons. It is the combination of the Carmel Valley microclimate and this unique terroir that produces exceptional wine grapes, unveiling the full potential of the vineyard in the glass. This wine showcases the finest in Carmel Valley terroir, with deep historic ties to Bordeaux and a classic winemaking style that allows true expression of the grape’s character.
Alluring fragrances of rose, plum, vanilla and French garrigue introduce the elegant and statured 2010 Clos des Moutons. A juicy core of earthy dark berry and orange peel unfold in the palate. Hints of blonde tobacco and forest floor emerge, offering a dry finish with savory notes. Smooth tannins drink easily today with aging potential to enjoy through 2022.
