Clos Rene 2016: a Pomerol with light tannins

The Clos Rene is a red wine from a 15-hectare vineyard in the Pomerol appellation. The vines have an average age of 35 years, and are planted in gravel-sand soils on an iron oxide subsoil. The estate has a blend of 75% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 5% Malbec. The aging at Clos Rene 2016 is carried out in oak barrels for 18 months.

Fairly subtle on the nose, the Clos Rene 2016 reveals on the palate light tannins and tasty touches of black fruit (blackberry and blueberry). On the finish, the oak is superbly integrated and we can notice subtle truffle notes. It can be enjoyed up until 2027.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2016 Clos Rene has a light, rather clayey bouquet, moderate definition and perhaps missing the tension and energy of some of its peers. The palate is better with light tannin and pretty blackberry and bilberry fruit, a touch of truffle developing towards the finish that evidences some carefully integrated oak. It is not a long-term Pomerol, but it is well crafted and should drink well for a decade or so.
