A wine with depth and generosity. Rich fruit and generously velvety tannins fill the mouth. Full-bodied and opulent, but not heavy. Sort of weightless. ~95-96 James Suckling
Beautiful depth to the aromatics on the nose; this is an extremely well controlled and well delivered wine, with a ton of plump raspberry, blueberry and loganberry fruits with texture and juice in them. The depth of flavour that you expect from Clos du Clocher is here in spades, chewy, tangy tannins build up on the finish to give an insight into how well it will age. After a few minutes in the glass, things broaden and soften, and the Pomerol signature seduction comes in, as do waves of violets. A yield of 45hl/ha. 60% new oak. 3.62pH. Drinking Window 2025 - 2042 ~95 Decanter
Sporting a deep purple-black color, the 2020 Clos du Clocher gallops out of the glass with energetic scents of crushed blueberries, boysenberries and plum preserves, plus touches of ground cloves, cedar chest and damp soil. The medium to full-bodied palate delivers beautifully pure, well-defined black fruits with a fine-grained texture and seamless freshness, finishing earthy. ~92-94+ Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Lots of ripe cherries, plums, violets, and cedary herbs define the nose of the 2020 Clos Du Clocher, which is medium to full-bodied, supple, elegant, and beautifully balanced on the palate. It displays the vintage’s fresher, more elegant style, yet still beings plenty of fruit and depth. It’s a brilliant wine in the making. ~92-94 Jeb Dunnuck
The 2020 Clos du Clocher is very perfumed and floral on the nose of exuberant black cherries, wild strawberry, shavings of black truffle and a touch of bay leaf. This is more sophisticated compared to its stablemate, Bonalgue. The palate is well balanced with fleshy ripe black fruit, licorice and hints of menthol. Certainly quite exotic in style compared to its peers, but controlled and quite persistent on the finish. An opulent Clos du Clocher, well crafted and with the substance to suggest long-term aging. ~92-94 Neil Martin Vinous Media
