Estate Notes

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 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.

Reviews

"The 2014 Clos du Clocher comes from vines located on Pomerol's central plateau and has seen an upswing in quality under Jean-Baptiste Bourrotte, who now has a brand new winery at his disposal out on the fringe of Catusseau. The wine has an elegant bouquet with subtle traces of dried blood and truffle oil infusing the red and black fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin and crisp acidity. There is a tangible harmony and sense of composure that pervades this Pomerol from start to finish, to wit, a sophisticated Clos du Clocher. I would single out the precision on the finish that elevates this above some of its peers. My advice: don't ignore this gem." eRobertParker.com
