The Estate
Domaine du Clos du Fief is run by the father-son team of Michel and Sylavain Tte. This is a rare 4th generation Cru estate in Julinas and Julie, based at the far Northwest sector of Beaujolais. The history of these great villages dates back more than 2,000 years and trace their names to Julius Caesar. Vines were grown on the high altitude hillsides of Julinas and Julli (a granite rich Beaujolais-Villages Cru that mimics its more famous neighbor) in the Gallo-Roman period. Michel took over this history-rich land after studying in Beaune, where he learned many techniques that he now uses on his own wines to great acclaim. Michel and Sylvain harken their wines back to the classics: low yields, meticulously farmed vineyards, and classic winemaking resulting in serious and mouthwatering examples of terroir driven reds.

"Not my favorite of the various vineyards, and a bit light on taste with too much "barrel" in the way. The fruit is lost and impure. Lacking finesse, it's a bit rough like a cheap Morgon. That leaves you a glass of wine that could have been better. Look for a better producer."
