Clos 56 Pomerol 2016

100% old vine Merlot from a tiny parcel (0.56ha) of exceptional terroir in heart of the Pomerol vineyard. It is inky black with intense, super ripe sweet fruit. Concentrated, rich and very classy with expensive spicy oak, the wine has lots of potential. Perfectly good to lie down for another 10 years, if you can keep your hands off it!

Right bank Bordeaux in the tiny Pomerol AOC. Single guyot pruning, de-budding, green harvesting, and only natural vine treatments. The grapes are hand-harvested and sorted yielding between 30-35 hl per hectare. 50% of the wine is fermented in tank with “pigeage” and 3-4 weeks post-fermentation maceration, the other 50% is fermented in barriques with a maceration of 5-6 weeks after which the wine is aged in new oak for 12-15 months.
