Clos du Clocher, Pomerol 2017
Merlot, Cabernet Franc
The 2017 Clos du Clocher has turned out beautifully. Rich, ample and voluptuous in feel, the 2017 has so much to offer. Juicy dark cherry, plum, chocolate, spice, new leather, licorice and mocha abound in a plush, open-knit Pomerol that has so much to offer. This is such a delicious and compelling wine. Antonio Galloni, Vinous (93)
The 4.6-hectare vineyard of Clos du Clocher is planted to 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc. Clos du Clocher in Pomerol is situated in the Catusseau sector, not too far from Chateau La Croix St. Georges. Clos du Clocher has a terroir with clay, gravel, and sand soils on slopes reaching up to 30 meters at their peak. The vineyard is divided into 4 main parcels. However, their best terroir is their gravel and clay soils located not that far from vines owned by Chateau Latour Pomerol and Chateau La Fleur Petrus. They also have vines planted next to Trotanoy. Those parcels are used to produce their Grand Vin. The wine is aged in about 60% new, French oak barrels for between 16 and 20 months. Starting with the 2014 Bordeaux vintage, the estate began vinifying a portion of the harvest using micro-vinification techniques, meaning that they are now vinifying a portion of their production entirely in French oak barrels.
Clos du Clocher is a small estate in Pomerol that, since the sublime 2009 and 2010 vintages, has been consistently producing excellent wines yet continues to fly somewhat under the radar. A blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc, this is a classically wrought Pomerol.
