Tasting Notes

Wild violets and blueberries meld with earthy, almost truffle-like aromas. The palate is a powerhouse of ripe-plum, dark-cherry and blueberry flavors cast amid sturdy, powerful, long tannins. Finishes fresh and vivid. A standout wine. Try from 2023.

Score: 96James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, February 2018

The 2015 Clos du Clocher has an outstanding bouquet with crushed strawberry, raspberry, black truffle and a touch of shoe polish. It is just a little riper than I was expecting, quite glossy. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannin on the entry. There is fine depth here, dense black fruit laced with tobacco and tar, structured on the finish that seems to have closed down since bottling. Give this 3 or 4 years in bottle before broaching. Anticipated maturity: 2022 - 2040

Score: 92+Neal Martin, -, March 2018

The 2015 Clos du Clocher is a blend of 81% Merlot and 19% Cabernet Franc that was matured in 65% new oak (15% 'vinification intégrale'). It has an intense bouquet with generous, vivacious dark cherry, cassis and black truffle aromas that do not hold back from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with silky smooth tannin, very nicely poised, quite weighty in the mouth with fine backbone on the finish, suggesting that this Clos du Clocher is a long-term contender.

Score: 92/94Neal Martin, Wine Advocate (224), April 2016

The 2015 Clos du Clocher is a powerful, unctuous Pomerol. Black fruit, chocolate, leather and licorice are some of the signatures. The 2015 is not especially refined nor subtle, but it has turned out to be a bit more complete than the barrel sample suggested.

Score: 90Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, February 2018

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. 2020 - 2035

Score: 93Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, Wine Advocate (Interim Fe), February 2018

The deep ruby/purple-colored 2015 Clos Du Clocher checks in as a rough blend of 80% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc that was raised in 65% new barrels. It’s another impressive wine from the consulting team of Michel Rolland. Black fruits, scorched earth, chocolate, and earth nuances are followed by a full-bodied, concentrated, opulent 2015 that has moderate acidity and enough background oak to warrant short-term cellaring.

Score: 90+Jeb Dunnuck, JebDunnuck.com, November 2017

The best vintage ever from Clos du Clocher rocks with its polished, silky textures and ripe, sweet, dense plums.
