2020 Clos du Clocher  (Pomerol) 94

Almost opaque in color, the perfectly ripe fruit is made better with its sexy, silk and velvet textures. Full-bodied, rich, sensuous and packed with layers of sweet, fresh, vibrant, hedonistic fruits, this is probably the best vintage of Clos du Clocher produced yet. 93-95 Pts

2019 Clos du Clocher  (Pomerol) 92

Flowers, black cherry, gun powder and a touch of mint on the nose get your initial attention. But the best part of the wine is on the medium-bodied, soft, silky, elegant, refined and long palate, that carries all the sweet, ripe, fresh, pure cherry and plum notes that end with a shot of chocolate. 91-93 Pts

2018 Clos du Clocher  (Pomerol) 93

Another wine that is showing much better in bottle than in barrel, here you find seductive layers of red and black pit fruits, truffle, flowers, cocoa and licorice with silky textures and a sensuous finish. The wine blends 70% Merlot with 30% Cabernet Franc. 93 Points

Flowers, black raspberries and herbs combine on the nose. On the palate, the wine is elegant, soft and polished with silky tannins and sweet, ripe plums along with olive tapenade in the finish. Give this a few more years to allow it to soften. The wine blends 70% Merlot with 30% Cabernet Franc. 90-92 Pts

2016 Clos du Clocher  (Pomerol) 93

Plummy, sensuous, and fleshy, the fruit feels just great on your palate. The wine is plush and polished with richness and silky textures in the finish. This could be the best value in Pomerol, an ever increasingly expensive appellation. 93 Points

2015 Clos du Clocher  (Pomerol) 94

Long, rich, polished and silky, this is a beauty. The fruit is ripe, the textures are polished and velvety, and the finish delivers plenty of both attributes. 94 Points

2009 Clos du Clocher  (Pomerol) 89

2009 Clos du Clocher is medium bodied, and opens with aromas of dark plums, black cherries, and bitter chocolate. It should show well young. 88-90 Pts

2008 Clos du Clocher  (Pomerol) 89

With a spicy, black cherry and oak perfume, this medium bodied, soft textured Pomerol is already showing well. Give it another year or two for this chocolaty, plum filled wine to develop further complexities. 89 Points

2006 Clos du Clocher  (Pomerol) 91

This is really turning out nice, with its ripe, plum, black cherry and smoky, truffle notes. Soft, round and with enough tannins and structure, to age and improve for at least 15 or more years, this is a value priced Pomerol. 91 Points

2001 Clos du Clocher  (Pomerol) 89

Fully developed, soft textured, elegant, earthy, medium bodied, ripe, cherry filled wine with hints of truffle on the nose. This is not a wine for further aging. Drink up as it its only going to fade from here. 89 Points

2000 Clos du Clocher  (Pomerol) 88

Medium bodied, better on the nose with its truffle and cherry charms than on the palate with its soft, bright cherry finish. I doubt this is going to improve much from here. 88 Points

1998 Clos du Clocher  (Pomerol) 90

What a nice surprise from this seldom tasted Pomerol. Aromas of truffle, spice, black cherry, cocoa and plum lead to a medium/full bodied wine with round textures and a plush plum, chocolate and black plum filled finish. Fully mature, this should deliver pleasure for at least another 5-10 years. 90 Points

1990 Clos du Clocher  (Pomerol) 86

On the bright, red berry side, edging to the spicy, wild strawberry part of the fruit spectrum. Medium bodied, with a rusticity to the tannins, and a growing crispness to the sweet and tart, earthy red fruits in the finish. This needs to be consumed. 86 Points
