The 2021 Clauzet has a slightly toasty bouquet, maybe just a bit bretty. The palate is very smooth, with plush sweet black fruit, but missing some grip on the short finish.

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2021 Clauzet gives up warm black and red currants, black raspberries, bay leaves and graphite notes with a hint of tobacco. Light to medium-bodied, the palate is soft and uncomplicated with a clipped finish.

A little fresh and laking in concentration through the mid palate means it loses some St Estephe typicity, but it is an enjoyable unfussy wine. Lloyd Lippens owner, with parts of the vineyard bought by Jacky Lorenzetti for Ch Lilian Ladouys. Eric Boissenot consultant.
