About the Producer
The passion of winegrower and wine-producer is an old tradition for the family de Clock. Originally from Holland, Jean Clock settled in Bordeaux in 1679, and decided to cultivate a vineyard in that region. As a result King Louis the XIV, who recognised the quality of his wines, naturalised him as a French citizen in 1686. In his lineage, Jean-Baptiste-Alexandre was ennobled in 1757 by Great Counsellor of the King (Conseiller Grand Secrétaire du Roi). Leon de Clock married Camille de Vulliod and like numerous generations of winegrowers before him, he undertook the management of the vineyard and the domaine. “Le Château Font-Mars” (The Castle of Font-Mars) is situated on the property at Mèze. Since 1864 until today the property was managed by the ancestors of Camille (Privat, Allié, Guibert, de Vulliod). Jean-Baptiste de Clock, their youngest son, is now the owner and perpetuates both family traditions. The vineyards cover 55 hectares and the terroir contains three different kins of soil: pliocène marin in the south, river formation in the west along the river Negue-Vaques, bégudo Rognacien, clay-chalk type in the Northeast.
Pale gold in colour with light green reflections. The bouquet shows white peach, bananas, perfume of white roses. This wine is crisp and bright, with with subtle floral and mineral notes on the finish. Bracing acidity backs up this lively wine.
