Clos du Clocher 2015 was purchased in its original wooden case.
Clos du Clocher is an elegant Pomerol style and a wonderfully pure expression of the vineyard's terroir - perfect for short- medium-term drinking for the vintage.
Annual production is just 2000 cases and the legendary consultant Michel Rolland consistently produces fine red wines of real elegance from a modest 7 hectares. In a diminishing field, this elegant style is one of Pomerols very best values, despite the fact that its fame is gaining on the back of excellent vintages.
"...the 2015 Clos du Clocher springs forth with profound notes of crushed blackberries, black cherries and blueberry compote plus touches of iron ore, bouquet garni, beef drippings and black soil. Medium to full-bodied, rich and concentrated in the mouth, it fills the palate with generous black and blue fruits, supported by firm, grainy tannins and seamless freshness, finishing with persistent minerally notes." robertparker.com
"The 2015 Clos du Clocher is a powerful, unctuous Pomerol. Black fruit, chocolate, leather and licorice are some of the signatures." Antonio Galloni
"This is massive with so much ripe fruit and velvety tannins, yet it manages to remain fresh and balanced. Full body, round texture and a long finish. Best ever from here." Antonio Galloni
