70% Merlot, 30% Old Cabernet Franc
“Only few properties in the prestigious appellation of Pomerol can claim to have their vineyard planted in the region’s famous veins of clay soil, and Clos du Clocher is one of these rare exceptions.
Powerful, dense and intense, the Clos du Clocher 2017 reveals itself to be very voluptuous. The bouquet exudes intense notes of wild strawberries and blackberries, evolving delicate floral notes, reminiscent of iris and violet, the signature of Pomerol. With its elegance and vivacity, the palate reveals a deep and dense texture, offering chewy tannins with a tight and balanced grain. Beautiful persistent, the finish ends with fresh graphite notes. A massive, fleshy and deep Pomerol with the most promising potential for age.”
“The 2017 Clos du Clocher has turned out beautifully. Rich, ample and voluptuous in feel, the 2017 has so much to offer. Juicy dark cherry, plum, chocolate, spice, new leather, licorice and mocha abound in a plush, open-knit Pomerol that has so much to offer. This is such a delicious and compelling wine.” (AG) (3/2020)
An 80/20 split of Merlot and Cabernet Franc, the 2017 Chateau Clos Du Clocher is an outstanding 2017 that’s well worth buying and cellaring. Terrific notes of black cherries, chocolate, leafy herbs, and a kiss of forest floor all emerge from the glass, and it’s medium-bodied, textured, and offers loads of pleasure. It’s going to keep for 15+ years.” (2/2020)
