Tasting Note:

La Clotte comprises four hectares of vineyards spread over the south facing limestone hillside at the south east of the village. Produced from 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc at yields of 32 hl/ha, this possesses much more muscle and depth than the Moulin St Georges. There is a hint of exotic wild fruit perfume, crème de mûre, garrigue, raspberry and salts. There is good cohesion, mouth filling bright fruit, notes of seductive blackcurrant and an engaging blood orange and saline finish. Very good.
