Domaine du Clos du Fief is run by fourth-generation winemaker Michel Tête, along with his son, Sylvain. The domaine boasts holdings of vines on many of the prized sites in the Juliénas appellation. While Michel does not claim to produce organic wines, his techniques follow traditional methods from a time before mass application of pesticides and herbicides. One of the reasons for his success is the use of a Burgundian method, with a semi-carbonic maceration. This draws out much flavor and aromatics from the grapes, lending a silky texture. Delicate rose petal notes on the nose mingle with hints of forest floor. But really, this wine is just packed with red berry fruit, perfect for sipping or with a great roast chicken (or a certain other bird!).
