Description: The Clos du Papillon is made from a vines that range from thirty-five to seventy years of age and is always the bigger and more structured bottling from Domaine du Closel. The 2007 was showing beautifully at the time I crossed paths with it in October of 2011, with just a touch of botrytis adding an additional sheen to the deep and truly beautiful nose of honey, a touch of pineapple, chalky soil tones, apples, bee pollen and orange peel. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, complex and shows off excellent mid-palate depth, with great nascent complexity, a quite powerful personality, bright acids and excellent length and grip on the very pure and racy finish. Just a lovely bottle in the making.
