Wild violets and blueberries meld with earthy, almost truffle-like aromas. The palate is a powerhouse of ripe-plum, dark-cherry and blueberry flavors cast amid sturdy, powerful, long tannins. Finishes fresh and vivid. A standout wine. Try from 2023.
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.

Dark, dense and opulent, showing lovely depth of ripe fruit. Oak and winemaking a touch present. Tight, firm structure. Good potential. (JL)
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+
The 2015 Clos du Clocher is a powerful, unctuous Pomerol. Black fruit, chocolate, leather and licorice are some of the signatures. The 2015 is not especially refined nor subtle, but it has turned out to be a bit more complete than the barrel sample suggested. (AG)
