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 2019 Clos du Clocher has a very seductive bouquet with layers of dark cherry, wild strawberry, soy and truffle scents. Later a touch of vanilla emanates from the oak, perfectly in sync with the fruit. The palate is very well balanced and super-smooth, fine acidity and a graceful, yet quite intense finish that leaves a residue of spice on the aftertaste. Very persistent. Outstanding." - Neal Martin, vinous.com, (June, 2020) Ratings: 93-95, Drink: 2024-2045

"Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2019 Clos du Clocher needs a little coaxing to reveal subtle scents of black raspberries, kirsch and wild blueberries, before a drop-dead gorgeous perfume of candied violets, cinnamon stick, clove oil, Darjeeling tea and star anise take center stage. The medium to full-bodied palate is very finely knit, with ripe, plush tannins and seamless freshness supporting the elegant flavors, finishing long and fragrant." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, (6/17/2020, Bordeaux 2019 Issue), Rating: 93-95
