2015 Clos du Clocher, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1261101 95-96 points James Suckling

 This is massive with so much ripe fruit and velvety tannins, yet it manages to remain fresh and balanced. Full body, round texture and a long finish. Best ever from here.  (3/2016)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 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.

90 points Decanter

 Dark, dense and opulent, showing lovely depth of ripe fruit. Oak and winemaking a touch present. Tight, firm structure. Good potential. (JL)  (4/2016)

90 points Jeb Dunnuck

 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. 90+  (11/2017)

Additional Information:



- A very popular red grape variety found in the great wines of St. Emilion and Pomerol. It is the most planted variety in Bordeaux, and it has also become an extremely fashionable red in many regions including California. Although it has a reputation to be smooth, and easy to drink when young, Merlot is also capable of producing extremely intense wines as well. It is often used as a blending agent with Cabernet Sauvignon.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
