About Clos Roussely
Located in the heart of Ange, a village in the Loire, Le Clos Roussely is an outbuilding of the old 18th Century castle. The 8 hectares that make up the vineyard holdings of Clos Roussely are worked by Vincent Roussely who took it over from his father Jean Claude in 2001. Since 2007 the vineyards have been managed organically and some of the vines are over 80 years old. Much of the work in the vineyards is by horse and plough with harvesting done mainly by hand.
This is a racy little number, but precise with citrus notes and something stone fruit, peach maybe, a little herbaceous also. A real class act from the Loire.
