Tasting Notes

A polished and refined wine with lovely sweetness of fruit in the center-palate for the vintage. Medium body. Juicy fruit. 80% merlot and 20% cabernet franc.

Score: 92 - 93

The 2021 Guillot Clauzel is another super-attractive wine from this emerging Pomerol property. Creamy and layered in the glass, the 2021 caresses the palate with supple dark fruit, leather, cedar and a kiss of new French oak. It's the sort of Pomerol that can be enjoyed with minimal cellaring. Guillaume Thienpont continues to do important work in elevating the estate. My impression, though, is that he is just getting started.

Score: 92 - 94

Managed by Vieux Château Certan's Guillaume Thienpont since 2018, this 2.5-hectare Pomerol estate has delivered a fine performance with the 2021 Guillot Clauzel. Exhibiting aromas of rose petals, sweet spices, smoke, red cherries and berries, it's medium to full-bodied, supple and fleshy, with a good core of fruit, supple tannins and a penetrating finish. A blend of some 20% Cabernet Franc and 80% Merlot, it's one of the few remaining values in the universe of high-quality Pomerol.

Score: 92 - 94
