Closerie du Pelan was established by Regis Moro in 1984 and is the unique expression of grapes harvested in the Pelan “lieu-dit”, to the north-east of Saint-Émilion village. Our vines thrive here without fertiliser, weedkiller, or any other synthetic products, in an environment which fosters their healthy root growth and vigour. The identity of Closerie du Pelan is shaped by the native yeasts present in our berries, gentle extraction without inputs and ageing in used barrels. This non-fined wine is low in sulphur. As of 2022 the Amoreau family (Château le Puy) has partnered with the Moro family to revive the estate.

Comprising a miniscule portion of the estate’s total production, the Closerie du Pelan Blanc is 100% Sauvignon Blanc, vinified and aged in steel, with malolactic fermentation having occurred without inducement. This 2016 is ripe but bright, with notes of preserved lemon and a hint of salt—a supremely satisfying and unfussy white Bordeaux.
