Proefnotitie

Clos du Clocher beschikt over 4,6 ha wijngaarden gelegen op het plateau van Pomerol. Uiteraard neemt de merlot druif de eerste plaats in van de oppervlakte), maar het is in combinatie met de opbrengst van de resterende 20-30% zeer oude cabernet franc, dat het château er ieder jaar weer opnieuw in slaagt om een buitengewoon mooie en aparte assemblage te maken.

Beoordelingen

Score: 94

The 2016 Clos du Clocher is medium to deep garnet-purple colored and very earthy on the nose with cigar box, forest floor, truffles and charcoal aromas with black cherries and baked red and black plums. Elegantly styled, the palate is medium-bodied with perfumed fruit, a fine-grained frame and a long refreshing finish.

Score: 93 punten (in-bottle tasting). Bigger and richer than its sibling property of Bonalgue, the terroir here allows more leeway in terms of wine construction. It has layers of liquorice, charred oak and rich black fruits, with Cabernet Franc austerity currently evident, lending both structure and florality. This is showing better than during en primeur, displaying clearer minerality and salinity on the finish without sacrificing the Pomerol embrace. Great potential, with a real sense of vitality. One to watch.

The 2016 Clos du Clocher has a rich, opulent bouquet with layers of macerated small black cherries, crème de cassis and violet aromas. There is brightness and vivacity here. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, finely judged acidity, a slightly lactic texture and flecks of dark chocolate toward the finish, which fans out nicely. This will need time, but it is very promising. A composed and refined Pomerol from Jean-Baptiste Bourotte.

The blackberry and dark-plum aromas are very prevalent here. Undertones of lemon rind and hot stones. Medium-to full-bodied, firm and chewy. Linear and focused with a fine line of tannins and acidity running through the center palate. Shows class. A blend of 75 per cent merlot and 25 per cent cabernet franc.
