A blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc the 2010 reached 14% alcohol naturally. Delicious kirsch liqueur sandalwood and black currant characteristics along with soft velvety tannins and a luxurious finish are found in this full-bodied effort. Enjoy it over the next 10-15 years.

Broad-shouldered showing lots of fruitcake crushed fig and plum sauce notes with extra flashes of spice and incense on the finish. Dense but shows definition and purity. -J.M.

La Clotte from limestone sand and clay terroir this is the first vintage that the owner included Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend which consists of 85% Merlot 10% Cabernet Franc and the remainder Cabernet Sauvignon. Licorice minerality chocolate mint and plum aromas with soft textures medium/full bodied and a fresh black cherry finish. Due to its high quality great style and low price this wine is often purchased by many of St. Emilion's most famous wine makers.

Yields were only 29 hls/ha. Aged for16 months in 50% new and 50% one-wine-old barrels. The nose reveals licorice truffle blackberry and plum framed by notes of vanilla and mocha. The palate is plush and modern with round tannins and great length and the elegant mid palate is filled with chalk and cassis. This should prove to be one of the top vintages of La Clotte. Drink from 2020-2035. Jean-Philippe Fort consults.
