ABOUT THIS WINE
Clos Genets is located on a 3.3 acre plot on top of the village of Santenay. The plot is on a sloped hill with eastern-facing sun exposure.

Aged for 12 months in oak barrels, of which 1/3 new, malolactic fermentation in barrels, then assembly in stainless steel tanks for 3 months. Light filtration to bring more clarity and aromatic purity.
ABOUT THIS PRODUCER
Domaine Guy & Yvan Dufouleur was established on the slopes of Nuits-Saint-Georges in 1596, and is currently managed by Yvan Dufouleur and his uncle Xavier. The Dufouleur family sold the negociant arm of their business, “Dufouleur Père et Fils,” in 2006, wanting to focus exclusively on estate bottled wines. Four hundred years is a long time for any winery, and through the centuries the family has acquired a whopping 28 hectares of prime vineyard sites extending from Fixin to Santenay. This portfolio includes the exclusive ownership of Fixin Clos du Chapitre Premier Cru. Farming is natural, and cellar work is hands-off. These sensory, revelatory wines are a must for anyone interested in distinctive Burgundy.
