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

"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." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, (2/21/2018, Interim Issue), Rating: 93
