From the tight-knit village of Pomerol, Clos du Clocher is a true sleeper whose price has not caught up with its quality. Originlly founded in 1924, located in the center of the Pomerol plateau, Clos du Clocher was put together piece by piece whenever opportunities allowed the owner to acquire more plots or a row of vines. As the plan shows, some of its vines are planted next to Château Trotanoy, some next to Château Vieux Château Certan.  Its best plots are not far from the vines owned by Château Latour a Pomerol and Château La Fleur-Pétrus. Not to mention, it has some illustrious neighbors: Le Pin (5 minutes walk), La Conseillante, Beauregard, Petit Village, Pétrus (15 minutes walk). The annual production averages about 1600 to 2000 cases. Need us say more?

Tasting Notes

"The 2010 exhibits plenty of blueberry and mocha-infused black cherry fruit with a hint of candied caramel. It is well-made, medium to full-bodied, with outstanding purity, texture and richness. It is not a blockbuster Pomerol, by any means, but one of mid-weight style and undeniable elegance. The sweetness of the tannin should ensure that it can be drunk now or cellared for 12-15 years." - Robert Parker Jr, The Wine Advocate, (2/27/2013, Issue 205), Rating: 90-93
