Le Clos du Mounat is a very long story for Christian Gourgourio, a year old! It is in fact the story of a meeting between an organic winegrower and Christian who proposed to him to take over part of his vineyard and an old vine hillside overlooking the Dordogne. 3.5 hectares of Merlot planted between 1961 and 1976 on old stone quarries, a superb clay-limestone soil, a beautiful orientation! A real favorite for Christian! 2015 was his first vintage, it is the result of his work, the reflection of his energetic personality, but also the reflection of the tranquility and serenity that one feels when walking in the vineyards.

Our story

I have been working in the vine and wine business for 20 years now. For a long time, I had dreamed of taking over a vineyard, but finally never dared to take the plunge. And it was finally at the moment when I had almost given up on that dream that this opportunity presented itself. The hillside of old vines has a history, but the Clos du Mounat has no history, it has no past. It is the result of my imagination, I started from an almost blank page! It's up to me to write the story of Le Clos du Mounat, a story in organic farming!

Other little stories

The winegrower's job is sometimes ungrateful, we work in all weathers. It is sometimes unfair, you can lose everything due to a climatic hazard! But it's a job of passion! What a joy, when the grapes return to the cellar, when the first smells of fermentation saturate the atmosphere. And then, little by little, there is the revelation, the result of a year: there is the wine! Originally, I did not come from the wine industry, it was by coming to Bordeaux for my studies and harvesting that I wanted to do this job. At the time, I didn't like the taste of wine, I evolved well!

During my various professional experiences, I have often been told that we were not there to make the wine we liked but to make the wine that consumers like! Who the hell is that? What is the consumer? I make a wine that I like, with sincerity! And it's because I like it that I can talk about it with passion and pride!
