Clos de Clocher

Clos du Clocher was founded in 1924 by Jean Baptiste Audy who started out with a small plot of vines near the church of Pomerol.

A fantastic follow-on to a stupendous 2022. Rich and ripe on the nose, with a careful level of extraction. The palate is full, densely bound with mocha, cherry, kirsch and crunchy blackcurrant noes, diffused with dusty cocoa and some minerality and graphite.

Perfectly paired with beef wellington with roasted butternut squash and greens.
Yields of 40hl/ha. Fermentation caried out plot by plot, in small stainless and cement vats with manual pumping over and punching of the caps. The malolactic fermentation took place in barrel. Aged for 18 months in fine-grained French oak barrels, 50% new. Alc 13.5%.
