Description

Les Varennes du Gand Clos is situated at the foot of the gravelly terrace formed, in part, by the erosion of the limestone slope.

This very particular silico-clay and silico-calcareous terroir lies on the left bank of the Vienne, in Sazilly.

The 4.5 ha (10.8 acres) of vines planted between 1962 and 1976, offer long keeping wines on dark fruit and spicy aromas.
