2012 La Clemence

Average critic rating : 88.75 points



A medium-weight Pomerol with less aggressive oak than I’ve noticed in the past, this blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc comes from a small 7.5-acre parcel. It exhibits a dense blue/purple color as well as sweet black cherry and black currant aromas intermixed with camphor, barbecue smoke, licorice and graphite characteristics. Medium-bodied with sweet tannin and an attractive finish, it should drink well for 10-12 years. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, April 2013



Moving to the reds, the 2012 Côtes du Rhône Villages Sablet Clemence is a gorgeous blend of Grenache and Syrah that saw 18 months in barrel. Getting a “Wow” in the notes, it’s a seamless, sexy Sable that exhibits notes of crème de cassis, licorice, crushed flowers and toasted bread. Medium to full-bodied, elegant and balanced, with a gorgeous texture that carries integrated acidity and good concentration, it should shine for 4-5 years. eRobertParker.com.January, 2015
