Clau de Nell
Anne-Claude Leflaive and Christian Jacques purchased Clau de Nell in 2008; Sylvain Potin joined the team as estate manager in 2009. The property is comprised of 10 hectares (24.7 acres) of vines on a gently sloping hill surrounded by open countryside. The highest point of Clau de Nell offers a glimpse of the Loire in the distance; from here, an uninterrupted view unveils the sky and the river on the horizon, as well as rows of Grolleau, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chenin Blanc. As with Domaine Leflaive, all of Clau de Nell’s wines are 100 percent biodynamic. Since the passing of Anne Claude Leflaive, Christian Jacques and Sylvain Potin are commited to keep her legacy alive through the biodynamic path and pursuit of the terroir’s finest expression.
"This domaine succeeds in 2011 after several years of tiny yields, following the recovery of these abandoned vineyards.”
