The tasting

Lively, mineral, almost saline, L’Eclos by Maisons Rouges is a biodynamic wine that leaves a first impression of purity. Then comes complexity.

Elegant and balanced, floral, citrus, white-fleshed fruit aromas, a hint of truffle and undergrowth intermingle, depending on the mood of the wine. We never get bored listening to him tell, with finesse, what it has to say …

Following a conversion to viticulture, Elizabeth and Benoît Jardin moved to the Jasnières appellation in 1994. They began with less than 1 hectare and increase that area over time. Les Maisons Rouges now represents 9 hectares. 

Since 2002, they use organic methods, and obtained certification in 2007. At the same time, they accentuated the aging on lees in oak barrels, in order to get more complex and structured wines.
In 2009, eager to go further in their philosophy of respect for the environment, they converted all the vineyard to byodinamic agriculture (certified by Biodyvin label).

When Benoit (in 2017) and Elisabeth (in 2019) retire, their son Adrien and their son-in-law Julien take over the estate, with the same state of mind to look for fine, elegant and mineral wines.
