Medium-to full-bodied, firm and chewy. Linear and focused with a fine line of tannins and acidity running through the center palate. Shows class. A blend of 75 per cent merlot and 25 per cent cabernet franc. Drink in 2022.

The 2016 Clos du Clocher is medium to deep garnet-purple colored and very earthy on the nose with cigar box, forest floor, truffles and charcoal aromas with black cherries and baked red and black plums. Elegantly styled, the palate is medium-bodied with perfumed fruit, a fine-grained frame and a long refreshing finish. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

(WE92-94 points) The tannins here are almost southern in their dusty character, structured and dense, yet at the same time the wine is ripe and fruity. It will be an impressive wine.

Even with all of its textural richness, the 2016 retains terrific energy. The new oak needs time to fully integrate, but that is not enough to keep the 2016 from being hugely appealing in the early going. The 2016 has been impressive on the three occasions I have tasted it so far. -- Antonio Galloni

Bigger and richer than its sibling property of Bonalgue, the terroir here allows more leeway in terms of wine construction.

Bigger and richer than its sibling property of Bonalgue, the terroir here allows more leeway in terms of wine construction. It has layers of liquorice, charred oak and rich black fruits, with Cabernet Franc austerity currently evident, lending both structure and florality. This is showing better than during en primeur, displaying clearer minerality and salinity on the finish without sacrificing the Pomerol embrace. Great potential, with a real sense of vitality. One to watch. Drinking Window 2024 - 2036 - Jane Anson Read more at https://www.decanter.com/wine-reviews/france/bordeaux/clos-du-clocher-pomerol-bordeaux-france-2016-11094#Rt3FS7jJy56uJS4Q.99

There is brightness and vivacity here. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, finely judged acidity, a slightly lactic texture and flecks of dark chocolate toward the finish, which fans out nicely. This will need time, but it is very promising. A composed and refined Pomerol from Jean-Baptiste Bourotte. -- Neal Martin

Tasted on two separate occasions, the 2016 Château Clos du Clocher is unquestionably an outstanding Pomerol that shows the quality of this great vintage. Spiced red and black currants, dried flowers, loamy soil, and hints of chocolate all define this medium-bodied, pretty, balanced, elegant 2016 that builds incrementally on the palate, showing terrific mid-palate depth and sweet tannins. Give it a few years and it will keep for two decades.
