Grandsons of Clement Depeyre (co-founder of Tulette’s cooperative) and sons of Henri, John Paul and Gerard Depeyre have been in Visan since 1972, the year they bought a magnificent farm dating back from the 16th century. The two brothers and their father expanded it in order to create The Clos du Pere Clement, one of the two first independent domains of the appellation Cotes du Rhone Village Visan. The Clos is situated on Visan’s best location called “Notre Dame” next to a Roman Chapel on 22.5 hectares of southward facing slopes composed of a rocky lime and clay soil. Vinification is done in stainless steel tanks with a semi maceration of 15 to 21 days under strict temperature control, and then placed in concrete before assembling. After a year of aging in an underground vat (with an additional 6 to 8 months in oak barrel for the Pere Clement Cuvee), and following the bottling, the wines are kept one more year in an underground cellar before release.
