Details

The blackberry and dark-plum aromas are very prevalent here. Undertones of lemon rind and hot stones. Medium-to full-bodied, firm and chewy. Linear and focused with a fine line of tannins and acidity running through the center palate. Shows class. A blend of 75 per cent merlot and 25 per cent cabernet franc. -James Suckling, Feb 2019

The 2016 Clos du Clocher is medium to deep garnet-purple colored and very earthy on the nose with cigar box, forest floor, truffles and charcoal aromas with black cherries and baked red and black plums. Elegantly styled, the palate is medium-bodied with perfumed fruit, a fine-grained frame and a long refreshing finish. -Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Nov 2018

The 2016 Clos du Clocher has a rich, opulent bouquet with layers of macerated small black cherries, crème de cassis and violet aromas. There is brightness and vivacity here. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, finely judged acidity, a slightly lactic texture and flecks of dark chocolate toward the finish, which fans out nicely. This will need time, but it is very promising. A composed and refined Pomerol from Jean-Baptiste Bourotte. -Neal Martin, Jan 2019
