2018 Chateau Guillot Clauzel, Pomerol 6x75cl

VM90-93
"Guillot Clauzel is one of the most intriguing Pomerols I tasted this year. Guillaume Thienpont has recently taken over the farming and winemaking at this small domaine. In 2018, Thienpont vinified... seven lots from the 2.4-hectare property. The 2018 is soft, pliant and wonderfully inviting. Blueberry fruit, sage, mint and lavender are all nicely lifted. Fresh, silky and open-knit, the 2018 will drink well right out of the gate. This is certainly an auspicious debut for Guillot Clauzel under the stewardship of Guillaume Thienpont. It will be interesting to see if Thienpont can coax a little more complexity from this site in the coming years. For now, the 2018 is certainly an impressive start. The blend is 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc." 90-93 pts., Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com

2019 Chateau Guillot Clauzel, Pomerol 6x75cl

"The 2019 Guillot-Clauzel is a dark, sumptuous wine. Black cherry, chocolate, dark spice, menthol, licorice and inky dark fruit infuse this plush, succulent Pomerol with tons of depth and character.... Soft, open-knit and plush in the glass, this under-the-radar Pomerol is absolutely exquisite. Guillaume Thienpont took over the farming and winemaking at this small domaine in 2018. The 22019 is another step in a very positive direction." 91-93 pts., Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com
