"Broad-shouldered, showing lots of fruitcake, crushed fig and plum sauce notes, with extra flashes of spice and incense on the finish. Dense, but shows definition and purity." (WS)

"One of the more seductive wines of St.-Emilion, La Clotte is always delicious with sweet tannins and lots of plump fruit. A blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc, the 2010 reached 14% alcohol naturally. Delicious kirsch liqueur, sandalwood and black currant characteristics along with soft, velvety tannins and a luxurious finish are found in this full-bodied effort. Enjoy it over the next 10-15 years." (WA)

"La Clotte from limestone, sand and clay terroir, this is the first vintage that the owner included Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend which consists of 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and the remainder, Cabernet Sauvignon. Licorice, minerality, chocolate mint and plum aromas with soft textures, medium/full bodied and a fresh black cherry finish. Due to its high quality, great style and low price, this wine is often purchased by many of St. Emilion’s most famous wine makers." (JL)

"Pretty blueberry and milk chocolate with a nutty undertone. Medium body. Attractive tannins. A little short. A little disappointing.$$" (JS)
