Clos des Forêts Saint Georges is only made with grapes from the vineyard's oldest vines as they give darker, more intense wines and express the very best of this exceptional terroir. Traditional vinification methods are used: the grapes are hand-picked, there is minimal cuvaison (maceration of the grape skins) and pumping-over is done sparingly to let things happen naturally to reveal the soul of the wine.
2007 was marked by unusual weather patterns, starting with a mild winter and a hot, dry spring. After May 15th, however, the weather became cold and wet and the sun only returned in September - just in time to dry out the grapes and rescue the vintage prior to harvest. Clos Des Forêts Saint Georges is traditionally a wine for ageing and, with a few years under its belt already, this vintage is now beautifully à point.
