K&L Notes

Clos Saint-Hilaire is located, like Clos de Goisses, in Mareuil-sur-Ay. It is a one-hectare property planted in 1964 and composed of clay and limestone. This is very porous and makes for great drainage. Depending upon the vintage, 3,500 to 7,000 bottles of Saint-Hilaire are produced.

    On Monday, September 12, I had the rare opportunity to taste the wines of the “the Clos.” The journey came to what could have been a sad end—because it was all over—with the 1999 Billecart-Salmon “Le Clos Saint-Hilaire.” Not so sad to end on this note! Amazing, amazing bead that goes on forever; dark and golden hued. Fine and frothy, with elements of smoke, exotic spice and anise. Once it opened up, it becomes even more intriguing with even more spices, praline, truffle and toast. Finishes softly and elegantly. One hundred percent Pinot Noir. It is named after the patron saint of Mareuil-sur-Ay and this bottling is indeed heavenly!
