Crafted with longevity in mind and meticulously stored, our Library Releases are a peek into the history of Clos du Val and the land we’ve cared for since 1972. Each wine on this page has been selected for its exemplary display of maturity and is ready to be enjoyed.
It is normal for natural cork to weaken over time; for wines that are 10 or more years old, we recommend using an Ah-So cork puller. For a step-by-step guide on how to open aged wines, check out this video
