In 2002, the Dornier family took over 10 hectares near Perpignan and stopped supplying the cooperative to produce their own wines. On the beautiful terroir of Maury, where Grenache and old Carignan grapes flourish, Nicolas has chosen organic farming and minimal intervention in the cellar, because, as he likes to say, "80% of the quality of a wine comes from the vine". And when you have a good raw material, a good dose of love is enough to produce wines that make a lasting impression.

Our story

A family vineyard since 1860, Clos des Vins d'Amour is run by the Dornier family and extends over three magical schist terroirs in Tautavel, Maury and Saint Paul de Fenouillet. These typical terroirs of white, grey and black Grenache and Carignan give rise to Maury appellation wines, both dry and sweet.Being a winegrower is not a job, it's a life: an awareness, an infinite thirst for projects, discoveries, questioning, amazement, captivity, friendship for the curious, a commitment to passing on know-how, passing on culture to future generations.Since 2008, we've been cultivating our plots of Grenache (black, grey and white), Carignan, Macabeu and Syrah with our bare hands and a caterpillar, listening to the life that animates the land and the time that passes through the seasons. At Le Clos, we have a global approach to terroir and nature, between interaction and reflection. Just as in our kitchen garden, we know that crossing paths with a chubby earthworm will be good for the vines, the terroir, and therefore our wines. This natural balance, the purity of the terroir on Cru Maury, and the expression of the fruit in the cellar, above all else, is what we like to find in our wines, and on lively, chatty tables teeming with lovely seasonal produce.

Other little stories

"In the cellar, the intervention is minimal, when you have a good raw material, you don't have to do too much. Our job is to accompany nature's work: adapting the grape variety to the terroir, working by hand, 80% of the quality of a wine is made on the vine. Our AB label (Organic Wines) only supports this philosophy which is close to our heart": "We like to think and make wines that we want to drink: fruity, elegant wines, with finesse, much more than just beasts for competitions".
