Clos d'Opleeuw is the wine project of talented winemaker Peter Colemont. The Clos d'Opleeuw (1 ha) vineyard takes its name from the entire wall, which dates from ± 1840. This wall makes this piece of vineyard unique in Belgium and ensures a specific microclimate that makes it possible to make a quality Chardonnay wine. The vineyard is located on a southern slope in the beautiful, picturesque, Haspengouw village of Gors-Opleeuw. Peter only applies the finest vinification techniques, as also happens with great wines from Burgundy. The wine is aged for one year in oak barrels of the highest quality. We work with both French and Belgian oak. This wine stands out for its strong velvety character. At a young age he possesses clear notes of oak. Still, there is more than enough freshness and fruitiness left. In addition, we taste aromas of butter, vanilla, fresh toast and a variation of white and yellow fruit. The concentration, fullness and nice aftertaste are excellent with various shellfish and fish dishes that are prepared with a somewhat firmer sauce. Pleistocene is the cuvée made from the sticks closest to the wall of the Clos and therefore have more sun hours and maturity. Very limited availability and on request. Serve in a wide glass at cellar temperature. health!
