Tasting Notes

Jancis Robinson, May 2007, Score: 16.5

Overwhelming sweet toasty oak over pure fresh cassis and cassis leaf. Then fine dry tannins and moderate fruit concentration. Fresh and dry tannins are palate cleansing though perhaps a touch too dry at the very end. (JH)

Producer

Château la Clémence

This little known property was born in 1996 as the result of an detailed search for a property in Pomerol by the Dauriac family helped by the friendly perspicacity of Michel Rolland.Grown upon the four best Pomerol terroirs of blue clay, clay-sand, gravel and sand ; the blend which gives the wine it's characteristic complex subtlety.It is produced from a five hectare vineyard, planted with 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc. As the name suggests, the wine is refined and elegant in the purest tradition of great Pomerols.

Region

Pomerol, Red Bordeaux

The small sub-region of Pomerol is situated north-east of the industrious city of Libourne. Pomerol's soils are predominately iron-rich clay with a smattering of gravel that produce wines with extraordinary power and depth. As a result of this clay-dominance, it has the highest percentage of Merlot planted in all of Bordeaux. Certain châteaux are produced exclusively from this grape, but most incorporate smaller quantities of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc as well. Despite its hefty (if not exclusive) proportion of Merlot, many people think of wines from this region as separate entities. As one wine aficionado stated recently, "It's not Merlot. It's Pomerol." Despite the region's small size, Pomerol contains some of the world's most sought after (and expensive) wines including Pétrus, Le Pin, Lafleur, l'Evangile and Vieux Château Certan. Unlike other Bordelais subregions, there is no system of classification. The châteaux are traded on reputation alone.
