Clos Rene, Pomerol, 2016

58.00

Clos René, is an estate that dates back to the mid -18th century, it is now co-owned by the Garde and Laserre families and managed by Winemaker Jean Marie Garde. Situated on the western side of Pomerol, the 16 hectare estate manages its Merlot (60%), Cabernet Franc (30%) and Malbec (10%) vines using sustainable methods. Winemaking at Clos René is quite traditional, with fermentation taking place in temperature controlled cement vats and tanks. The wines are aged for an average of 18 months in oak barrels, out of which only around 25% are new.

Wine Advocate  89 – 91 points: The 2016 Clos Rene has a light, rather clayey bouquet, moderate definition and perhaps missing the tension and energy of some of its peers. The palate is better with light tannin and pretty blackberry and bilberry fruit, a touch of truffle developing towards the finish that evidences some carefully integrated oak. It is not a long-term Pomerol, but it is well crafted and should drink well for a decade or so.
