Description

Rich and expressive with red and black berry jams with hints of tobacco, fragrant soil, cloves and star anise. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is beautifully structured with ripe, fine-grained tannins and seamless freshness lifting the dense, earthy layers before leading onto an endless finish.

The interesting thing about Guillot-Clauzel is that the vineyard sits in the centre of a triangle encompassing Le Pin, Nenin and Trottanoy. It covers three different aspects of Pomerol in this location and produces a Merlot dominant blend similar in style to the ultra-premium Le Pin – minus the cost of £1000-plus per bottle.

Guillot-Clauzel is what’s known as a garagiste or ‘garage’ producer, which means high-quality wine made in a minimal, ‘backyard’ style. This tiny estate is located in the heart of Pomerol and is home to the prized blue clay soils typical of the area, as well as more common types. Only a hectare of the site (more than half its total size) goes to the Guillot range, producing about 14 barrels (or around 4000 bottles) each year.
