70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 10% Malbec
Red – Savory and Classic
Clos Rene’ is not a ‘Chateau’ per se, although it is often referred to as such according to Bordeaux wine naming traditions.
When to Drink: 2020-2032
Wow. Gorgeous aromas of perfume, spices and dark fruits such as bramble berries. Full body, ultra-fine tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Shows strength with finesse. Give it three or four years to come completely together but beautiful already.
A blend of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 10% Malbec, the 2015 Clos Rene has a perfumed raspberry preserve and crushed strawberry-scented bouquet. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grain tannin, a mixture of red and black fruit with a very refined, pastille-like, spicy finish. This is a lovely Pomerol to enjoy over the next 10-15 years, certainly one of the best offerings from the sandier soils on the western sector of the appellation. (28/4/2016)
“The 2015 Clos Rene, perhaps the best Pomerol cru to the west of the appellation, has a fragrant bouquet with blackberry, raspberry, rose petal and mineral scents that are very nicely focused and display good vigor. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, quite classic in style (as Clos René usually is) but with plenty of freshness on the cedar and tobacco-tinged finish. This is a very promising Pomerol that deserves 4 or 5 years in bottle.”
Drink Date: 2020 – 2025
Dark and glowing. Both fresh and succulent on the nose. Round and ripe. Lots of fun even if fairly alcoholic and upfront. No excess of oak. (Jancis Robinson 1/4/2016)
