This weekâ€™s Wine Word of the Week is clos.
Official definition from Jancis Robinsonâ€™s The Oxford Companion to Wine:
Clos is French for â€˜enclosureâ€™, 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.
Laymanâ€™s terms from Kori:
Clos is an enclosed or walled vineyard.
