Block 5

by amantduvin

The name “clos” come from the French word “enclose”. This translates into English as  “paddocks” and “blocks” . New world producers are creating their own “cru” classification systems of viticultural practices from desginated, small parcel reserve vineyards, and named as  Burgundy’s “lieux-dits” were, quite logically named places. The wines below are all from numbered vineyards, and are simply called “Block 5”.
