ZGP Stajerska Slovenija, Sivi Pinot (pinot gris), Clos Velicane - 2021

The south-facing aspect of the Clos often leaves a few grams of residual sugar, but the terroir always provides enough freshness to make this a well-balanced wine that can be enjoyed dry. Initial nose of greengage, fresh plum, with hints of chlorophyll and menthol. The attack is full and relatively rich, with a discreet sweetness that disappears behind the wine's tension. The Pinot Gris typicity here is unique and unlike any other known. It's worth keeping! Jancis Robinson : 17/20

Viticulture

Clos Velicane is a very small property (1 ha), planted with Riesling and Pinot Gris, located in the north-east of Slovenia, in the famous Jeruzalem Cru, near the small town of Ljutomer. It is also the story of the encounter of a French wine enthusiast Jérôme Pérez; in the heart of breathtaking landscapes, his vineyard is unique in that it is among the highest in the area. It is the hottest point of the vineyard, but it is also the place where the highest acidity is measured: this is due to the high proportion of marl and the unique lightness of the soil.

Oenology

The vines are grassed and all work on the soil is done manually. The estate is in conversion to organic farming. The vineyard is trained in guyot simple with 6 eyes. The harvest for the dry wines is fixed according to the maturity: around 95 Oe. The harvest is done early in the morning and the fruit is pressed immediately without destemming or maceration. The juice is settled overnight and fermentation is carried out using indigenous yeast strains. The wine is aged in stainless steel tanks on fine lees for about a year. Sulphiting is minimal. The wines do not undergo malolactic fermentation.

Suggestions for accompaniment

It is a perfect accompaniment to fish and shellfish, and can be kept for fifteen years.

Amateurs de découvertes et de dépaysement en matière de vin, vous allez être "servis" ! 

Le Clos Veličane est une toute petite propriété d'un hectare située au nord-est de la Slovénie, dans le célèbre Cru Jeruzalem, près de la petite ville de Ljutomer (les vins de cette région étaient les plus réputés de l’empire Austro-Hongrois). Clos Veličane, c’est l’histoire de la rencontre d’un français passionné de vins, Jérôme Pérez, cofondateur du forum lapassionduvin.com, avec un terroir qui fait sans aucun doute partie des plus qualitatifs de son pays ; au cœur de paysages époustouflants, ce cru se singularise par son exposition et son altitude, parmi les plus élevées du secteur, ce qui en fait un cru à part entière.

Comme sur tout le terroir de Jeruzalem, le sol présente une forte teneur en sable : très présent et presque pur en haut de la colline, il se mélange à l’argile à mesure que l’on descend dans la pente, mais il est toujours une constante...
