2018 Clos du Clocher, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1414887 94-95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Very perfumed and pretty with dark berries, vanilla and hints of chocolate on the nose. Medium to full body, bright fruit and ripe, polished tannins. Inner quote mark (4/2019)

93-95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2018 Clos du Clocher, picked from 27 September until 5 October, was matured in 60% new oak. It has a classic Pomerol bouquet with blackberry and raspberry fruit laced with smoke and black truffle. The palate is quite intense, as you would expect, since the yield was 32hL/ha. Supple tannins, very saline in the mouth with a generous sprinkling of black pepper on the finish. This is an impressive Pomerol in the making with very good persistence. Superb. (NM) Inner quote mark (11/2019)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Composed of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc, the deep purple-black colored 2018 Clos du Clocher slips sensuously out of the glass with kirsch, black cherry compote and preserved plums scents with hints of Chinese five spice, candied violets and Ceylon tea. Full-bodied, rich and laden with black fruit preserves and exotic spice layers, it has a soft texture and just a spark of mid-palate freshness, finishing long and opulent. (LPB) Inner quote mark (4/2019)

91-93 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The dark plum-colored 2018 Château Clos Du Clocher is a rich, chewy, concentrated Pomerol that has impressive amounts of dark fruits, earth, chocolate, and smoked tobacco. Medium to full-bodied and concentrated, with a stacked mid-palate, it’s a serious wine that’s going to benefit from 2-4 years of bottle age and keep for 15+. Inner quote mark (5/2019)

K&L Notes

89-92 points Antonio Galloni for Vinous: "The 2018 Clos du Clocher is terrific. Bold, punchy and flamboyantly ripe, the 2018 also has quite a bit of supporting structure. Crème de cassis, lavender, mint, licorice and new oak infuse a creamy Pomerol that stands out for its decidedly opulent personality. Clos du Clocher can be a touch over-extracted. While the 2018 is not a subtle wine by any means, it is also quite polished, with striking density and fine overall balance. Tasted three times." (4/2019)
