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 deep purple-black colored 2018 Clos du Clocher slips sensuously out of the glass with kirsch, black cherry compote and preserved plums scents with hints of Chinese five spice, candied violets and Ceylon tea. Full-bodied, rich and laden with black fruit preserves and exotic spice layers, it has a soft texture and just a spark of mid-palate freshness, finishing long and opulent." robertparker.com

"The 2018 Clos du Clocher is terrific. Bold, punchy and flamboyantly ripe, the 2018 also has quite a bit of supporting structure. crème de cassis, lavender, mint, licorice and new oak infuse a creamy Pomerol that stands out for its decidedly opulent personality. Clos du Clocher can be a touch over-extracted. While the 2018 is not a subtle wine by any means, it is also quite polished, with striking density and fine overall balance." Antonio Galloni

Ripe, summer pudding, fruity nose. Quite creamy, with chocolate and a touch of allspice. Fresh, clean and ripe on the palate with fine textured tannins. Good long finish.
