This is the flagship of the Estate. Clos Medecin has been produced at the estate for 90 years. All the grapes for this wine come from a very special parcel. It was Ageing in a Stainless steel tank for 12 months. The wine was slightly filtered before bottling.
The Domain: Domaine de Brize is located in the town of Terranjou, in the Maine-et-Loire department of the Loire Valley. The 40 hectare-estate was born in the middle of the 18th century, founded by the Delhumeau family. The winery strived between the two world wars under the leadership of Pierre, a young, innovative, ingenious, and combative man who compensated for the loss of his mutilated hand during the War. He transmitted his passion for wine to his grandson Marc who followed in his footsteps and ran the property for 30 years, with the assistance of his two brothers. His son Luc joined the family estate in 1989, then his daughter Line came on board in 1992 together with her husband Didier. Brother and sister Luc and Line represent the 5th generation of the family winemakers and the 9th generation on the farm.
The vineyard is planted on highly diversified soils dominated by silico-clay, shale-sandstone. The viticulture practices meet the 'Terra Vitis' approach in respecting nature, people, the environment, and the soil.
