2018 Clos du Clocher  (Pomerol) 91

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.

Lush, soft, opulent, deep red fruits, licorice and perfectly ripe black cherries with a hint of chocolate that comes through in the finish. And it sells for a fair price too!

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.

With coffee bean, herbs, mint, cocoa and red berries in the nose, this light style of Pomerol is on the fresh side with tangy, red berries in the finish. 86-88 Pts

Coffee bean and a mélange of fresh juicy plums open to a sweet mouthful of fresh black raspberries, while cocoa, spice and cherry liqueur add up to a delicious, well-priced Pomerol. 91-93 Pts

2010 Clos du Clocher  (Pomerol) 91

The forward, open style makes this Pomerol a fun wine to drink already. With ample layers of ripe black cherry, licorice and oak, the wine is plush, plump, polished and fairly priced, finishing with sweet, ripe, chocolate covered cherries.

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.

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.

2005 Clos du Clocher  (Pomerol) 90

Chocolate covered cherries, earth, floral and fresh herbs dominate the perfume. Medium bodied, with round textures, this supple Pomerol wine is developing nicely, ending with polished licorice and black raspberries.

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.

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.

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.

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.
