80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, called Bouchet locallyInky ruby/purple, the wine offers up notes of licorice, damp earth, blue and black fruits, high levels of glycerin and opulence, and a full-bodied mouthfeel. This wine is impressive, and may be one of the Clos du Clocher cuvées that lives up to its great terroir and potential. It is a beauty and still somewhat under the radar. Drink it over the next 15-20 years. Score 92, Robert Parker, April 2015

Very well-situated on the highest part of the plateau, tucked between the illustrious Chateaux of Lagrange and Trotanoy, and just a half kilometre from Chateau Petrus, Clos du Clocher is a tiny property, just under 15 acres of approximately 40 year old vines producing about 3,000 cases per year on average. The vineyards represent the classic Pomerol proportions of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, called Bouchet locally.

The nose is dense black fruits, notably plum and stewed Bing cherry, licorice and a hint of dark chocolate where the Merlot meets the barrel. Dark plum and blackberry on the palate with that classic right bank earthiness that elevates food. At eight years old, the tannins are no longer chewy but assimilating nicely into the wine's dark fleshiness that spills into the lovely finish. 14.4% alc.
