This is massive with so much ripe fruit and velvety tannins, yet it manages to remain fresh and balanced. Full body, round texture and a long finish. Best ever from here.
The 2015 Clos du Clocher is a blend of 81% Merlot and 19% Cabernet Franc that was matured in 65% new oak (15% 'vinification intégrale'). It has an intense bouquet with generous, vivacious dark cherry, cassis and black truffle aromas that do not hold back from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with silky smooth tannin, very nicely poised, quite weighty in the mouth with fine backbone on the finish, suggesting that this Clos du Clocher is a long-term contender.

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+
