WELL-PRICED POMEROL: A NEARLY FORGOTTEN CATEGORY OF BORDEAUX
With most well-regarded Pomerol's easily clocking in at over $100 retail, finding classic, benchmark expressions has become difficult for us at a reasonable pricepoint. Enter Clos du Clocher and their superb 2012 expression of this Right Bank terroir. As the name suggests - Clocher means 'bell-tower' - this tiny 4.5ha estate lies near the church in Pomerol in between Le Pin and Saint-Emilion's Cheval Blanc and less than 1000m from both. This estate has now been purchased by the Bourotte family that makes Château Bonalgue in Pomerol, and consulting is run by Michel Rolland. While this 2012 bottling precedes the renovations to the winery, this terroir has always promised greatness. The 2012 vintage is excellent for the price, and successfully demonstrates why this terroir was worth its eventual purchase. The wine is ripe and powerful, but with the velvet embrace that only top Merlot can offer. This under-the-radar beauty will reward for the next 15-20 years.
