Clos de Mez, 'Château Gaillard'
Marie-Élodie Zighera-Confuron, Winemaker
Clos de Mez is a small estate producing from just 5 hectares of vines, those in Fleurie are located not far from the chapel of La Madone in Fleurie, which is visible from the front courtyard looking north up the very steep hill. Owned and run by Marie-Élodie Zighera-Confuron, who inherited these beautiful old vineyards from her grand-mother which had been passed down through the family for generations and where she had spent time growing up as a child.
Marie-Elodie made her first vintage in 2006 after studying viticulture and oenology in Dijon and Montpellier and working for experience at Chateau de la Tour in Clos Vougeot among other places. Marie-Elodie is married to the owner of the famous 3 star Vosne-Romanee estate of Confuron-Cotetidot and she splits her time between the 2 estates.
