Clos des Moines

Just like the Clos des Abbayes, located lower down, the Clos des Moines is one of the five wine domains owned by the City of Lausanne. The wines from these two properties share the same characteristics typical of Dézaley, a terroir that is clearly beneficial for growing Chasselas. Barely 10% of the four hectares of the Clos des Moines are devoted to red wines, mainly Gamay.

The grapes grown in the Clos des Moines are part of the Vins de Lausanne, which consist of a classic range - sold at auction in December for over 200 years - and a recently created Sélection L.

Before the start of the 20th century, the domain was called Dézaley d'En Haut or Dézaley de Hautcrêt. It was founded in the 12th century by Cistercian monks from the abbey with the same name. In 1802, the City of Lausanne bought the vineyard back during a sale of national assets.
