But what is a clos ?

A clos is a sourrounded vineyard usually by a stone wall or hedge.

You can find this word on wine label. Originally, the monk used it to prevent animals to come and damage the vines and avoid theft.

Famous Clos – Clos de Vougeot and Clos des Lambrays (both in Burgundy), Clos de la Coulée-de-Serrant (Loire Valley) and Clos du Mesnil (Champagne)
