The story: In 1924, Libourne-based wine merchant Jean-Baptiste Audy purchased a vineyard on the Pomerol plateau close to the village church, beginning the story of Clos du Clocher. Today, his great-grandson, Jean-Baptiste Bourotte runs the 5.9 hectare property along with the négociant business and the family’s other properties, which include Châteaux Bonalgue and Beauséjour. The oldest parcel dates back to 1957. 

Why you’ll love me: The 2016 Clos du Clocher is medium to deep garnet-purple colored and very earthy on the nose with cigar box, forest floor, truffles and charcoal aromas with black cherries and baked red and black plums. Elegantly styled, the palate is medium-bodied with perfumed fruit, a fine-grained frame and a long refreshing finish.
