The producer

Producing only 2000 cases per vintage, demand for Clos du Clocher remains consistently high. Established in 1924 by Jean-Baptiste Audy, now overseen by his great-grandson Jean-Baptiste Bourotte, who has modernized the estate with new facilities including an underground, air-conditioned barrel room. Situated on prime clay and gravel parcels on the Pomerol plateau, its four key vineyard plots benefit from optimal locations. Renowned consultant Michel Rolland advises head winemaker Cécile Dupuis, ensuring quality at every step.

The wine

Considered a symbol of refinement by wine enthusiasts, the distinguished 'Clos Du Clocher 2016' originates from Bordeaux's prestigious Pomerol region, France. Meticulously crafted by the esteemed Ronan by Clinet team, this luxurious wine exudes elegance. With a blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc grapes, it offers a uniquely layered and complex aroma profile.

Aged for 16 months in French oak, this full-bodied delight unveils a rich palate of black cherries, mulberries, and Asian spices, interwoven with earthy undertones and delicate floral notes. Its long, captivating finish embodies Bordeaux's essence in every sip. Well-balanced, it epitomizes the region's terroir with finesse. With impressive aging potential, this vintage will only enhance its status as a prized addition to any collection.

We choose our wines based on a range of criteria (see how we choose our wines) of which critic scores is just one. Rather than simply highlight the best score to promote a wine, our average critic score is calculated from the scores provided by several respected wine critics, who we follow for specific regions. They do not represent all critic scores and, wherever possible, we try and give more weight to more recent reviews. Where appropriate we consider market-based scores like Global Wine Score or Wine Searcher Average scores.

As a rule, we look to offer wines that achieve a 92/100 average critic score or better and frankly a lot of very good wines simply don’t make the cut. As a high-end provider we want to reflect that positioning in the quality of wines we offer. Such wines are only a tiny fraction of those generally on offer in the market. We believe that an average score is a more conservative and representative approach, but it is still subjective and only offered as a guide to our customers, who will (and should) do their own research. We will add individual critic scores to our website in the future.
