Indisputably, the southern clays (also called the Southern Valleys) enables Marlborough to play amongst the finest Pinot Noir terroirs in the world. Pinot Noir fruit sourced from our Broadbridge clay typically reveal femininity through its lacy tannins and delicate fruit palette, while fruit from Wither Clay captivates your senses by its more masculine characters, dense structure and fine tannins. Clos Henri is the elegant and complete expression of the best of these two clay soils. A plush while attractively fresh nose with raspberry, tobacco and soft elegant spice. Velvety tannins harmonise with red fruits, with Christmas spice and violet bringing excellent poise and allure to the palate. Enjoy with herb crusted Lamb or chargrilled venison.

    Description

    Nestled under the southern foothills of Marlborough’s Wairau Valley, Clos Henri is the wine estate meticulously established and organically run by the famous Sancerre wine growing family of Henri Bourgeois. With 10 generations of winegrowing know-how from the Bourgeois family, Clos Henri crafts textural and elegant wines, capturing the intense Marlborough character with the aim to reveal the identity of the Clos Henri terroir and a true sense of place in the wines. From the three different soil types of the estate, partially comprised of a clay hill slope, the family uses the best of French and New World winegrowing techniques to capture the essence of Marlborough’s intense character and reveal the identity and depth of the Clos Henri terroir. Clos Henri uses natural methods from the vineyard to the winery, practices dry farming and is a proud member of MANA: Marlborough Natural Winegrowers. The estate has been fully certified organic by the harvest of 2013.

    Clos Henri's 2017 Pinot Noir is an excellent effort. Its subtle florals and ripe black cherries are concentrated but restrained, balanced against a backdrop of loam, crushed stone and pencil shavings. Medium-bodied and silky on the palate, it's a wine made to complement food, not dominate it, with silky tannins and a long, gently textured finish. This French-owned property seems to be getting more and more consistent over recent vintages.
