    The 2005 Clos du Clocher is a treat. After a day tasting Right Bank divas, Clos' elegant subtletywas refreshing. Finely tuned with notes of wild strawberries and minerals, it will be excellent value in 2005. Drink 2011-2020.

  • Neal Martin, Score: 88

    The 2005 Clos du Clocher offers good density and plenty of power. Mature aromatics and potent, searing tannins argue for drinking this sooner rather than later. This is a decidedly heady, extracted style. I find the tannins and finish a bit astringent.

  • Robert Parker, June 2015, Score: 93

    The 2005 Clos du Clocher is a blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc from a beautifully situated vineyard near the appellation’s lovely church on the heavily clay-dominated plateau of Pomerol. This property produces less than 2,000 cases of wine. With a gorgeous concentration of mocha, coffee, chocolate, kirsch and blackcurrant, this stunning, full-bodied 2005 is soft, silky, opulent and luscious. This beautifully rich, heady Pomerol is certainly a star of the appellation in this vintage. Drink 2015-2030

  • Robert Parker, April 2008, Score: 89

    A strong effort from this estate, which remains somewhat disregarded in the Pomerol hierarchy, the deep plum/purple-hued 2005 Clos du Clocher offers up notes of sweet chocolate, caramel, black cherries, herbs, and camphor. With ripe tannin, an opulent, fleshy mouthfeel, and decent acidity, the impression is one of breadth and hedonism. Enjoy it over the next 10-15+ years. Drink: 2008 - 2023.

  • Robert Parker, April 2007, Score: 89-91

    I am never sure in which direction this wine is going until it has been bottled, but the 2005 appears to possess outstanding potential. Its impressive deep plum/ruby/purple color is followed by sweet aromas of mulberries, cherries, white chocolate, smoke, and camphor. Excellent fruit, a gorgeous texture, sweet tannin, and a lush, hedonistic finish suggest it will provide lovely drinking during its first 10-12 years of life. Drink 2007-2019.

  • Robert Parker, April 2006, Score: 90-92

    For unknown reasons, this Pomerol estate remains under most consumers radar, but they have been fashioning strong efforts over recent vintages. The dense ruby/purple-colored 2005 possesses a sweet nose of mulberries, black cherry liqueur, smoke, and licorice, terrific fruit, low acidity for the vintage, a textured mouthfeel, and an impressive finish. It should drink well for 15 or more years. Drink: 2006 - 2021.

  • Jancis Robinson, April 2006, Score: 17

    Sweet, ripe, floral nose. Rich, broad spread of winning flavours. More forward than some though with excellent structure and energy underneath. Very positive. Drink 2010-22.

Clos du Clocher

Clos du Clocher is a little known property with a very good terroir. They only make around 2,000 cases a year which may be part of the reason that it has remained in the shadows.



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.
