Wine Word of the Week: Clos

By Kori ~ May 22nd, 2010.

This week’s Wine Word of the Week is clos.

Official definition from Jancis Robinson’s The Oxford Companion to Wine:
Clos is French for ‘enclosure’, and any vineyard described as a Clos should be enclosed, generally by a wall. This is a particularly common term in Burgundy, but is also used elsewhere.

Layman’s terms from Kori:
Clos is an enclosed or walled vineyard.
