The launch of our new look web site represents a new stage in the life of Les Clos Perdus.
Over the last two years, in the knowledge that my founding partner Hugo Stewart would be leaving the business, I have put in place a team of talented individuals that will help carry Les Clos Perdus in its ambitious journey of creating vibrant and elegant wines that reflect the wonderful and varied terroir of the Languedoc/Roussillon.
Over our short history it has become evident that the functioning and success of a viticulture/winery business relies, and is fuelled by, an extended family that understands the workings, ambitions and philosophies of the enterprise. These people include direct family, winery and vineyard workers, suppliers, agents, importers, caveists and sommeliers.
We are very grateful for those of you that have helped fuel Les Clos Perdus to this point and are looking forward to sharing with you our continuing development.
In the cave we have already undertaken a level of small batch exploration in new techniques and blends that should inform Les Clos Perdus in its future. In the vineyard we have increased treatments with tisane and compost liquids so as to reduce the reliance on sulphur.
So, having gathered a body of knowledge we hope to move forward with the same energy and innocence of our beginning.
We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
