An original red Pomerol wine
The Clos du Clocher is made in the Pomerol appellation. It is a red wine made from a blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc. The vineyard is 5.9 hectares and has vines with an average age of 33. The vineyard is planted with 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc. Its terroir consists of clay-silt soil on blue clay subsoil and deep gravel. The wine is aged for 18 months in fine-grained French oak barrels (two-thirds in new barrels and one-third in older barrels).
The Clos du Clocher 2015 is discreet in its youth. Once it opens up in its maturity, it reveals originality and exceptional character. It exudes the aromas of black fruit, violet and truffle, which are the characteristic scents of Merlot. There are also notes of spice, menthol and tobacco, as well as the freshness and subtlety of the aged Cabernet Franc.
Pay attention that wine is a product that evolves over time. It is therefore natural that the current comment may become obsolete in the future.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Composed of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc coming mainly from clay soils on the plateau and aged for one year in oak, 65% new, 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.
