Another wine with a huge following, Clos René does the impossible: Pomerol en primeur at a price you don’t have to re-mortgage your house to afford! Dating back to the mid-18th century, today it expands over 18 hectares of vines, around 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc & 10% Malbec. This astoundingly good 2020 has a voluptuous nose & palate of bilberry, violet, truffle and blood orange. Neal Martin agreed, writing, I cannot recall a Clos René as structured as this latest release. Quite peppery toward the finish, which leaves behind a long, tobacco-tinged aftertaste. This is an excellent Clos René.
