Clos Dubreuil

Appellation : Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

Located on generous clay and limestone soils, the Clos Dubreuil estate covers 21 acres within the village of SAint Christophe des Bardes. The vines grow in ideal conditions up on the Saint-Emilion plateau. It is made up of four units that constitute a mosaic of terroirs, each with different charcteristics. The Clos is at an average altitude of 260 feets and benefits from the best possible orientation and natural drainage from clayand limestone soil, which enables its vines to express their complexity freely. This balanced mix combines the freshness derived from the clay with the filtering properties of the limestone rock.

Ralph et Lisa Eads, propriétaire de Clos Dubreuil.

The owner’s pitch.

Les origines d’Eads Family Vineyards remontent aux années 1970, lorsque leur matriarche est devenue l’une des premières femmes à importer du vin français au Texas. En 2005, Ralph et Lisa Eads se sont associés à un viticulteur bordelais pour créer un domaine viticole qui représente leur vision de ce que doit être un vin exceptionnel.

Richness & balance
Vines over 40 years old for an average production of 40 hectolitres per hectare (10 bunches per vine). The grapes are harvested and sorted by hand before being sent by gravity to the fermentation vats. The berries are not crushed and the pre-fermentation stage lasts 7 days at less than 5°C. Fermentation then lasts two weeks at a maximum temperature of 27°C. A pre-fermentation maceration of about 1 week gives Clos Dubreuil an incredible finesse and concentration. This Saint-Emilion Grand Cru is then aged in extra fine French oak barrels for about 20 months before bottling.
