"“Tasted at the Cru Bourgeois 2009 tasting in London. The Clauzet 2009 has a very classic, cedar and sous-bois tinged bouquet with good depth of fruit. The palate is harmonious and well-defined with light, tensile tannins and very refined, elegant finish. Bon vin! Tasted September 2011."

Product Description:

"Belgian Baron Maurice Velge first dipped his toe in the St. Estephe water in 1997, purchasing 2-3 hectares of vineyards from Château de Côme. A short while later, he purchased Château Clauzet and its 5-6 hectares. The château sits in the village of Leyssac, just west of the road that connects the famous Cos d’Estournel with Château Montrose and others. After several other transactions, Clauzet’s vineyard plots total over 20 hectares. These plots are located between Montrose, Haut Marbuzet, Meyney, and Cos d’Estournel … some prime real estate. Baron Velge wasted no time hiring José Bueno, cellarmaster at Clerc Milon and d’Armailhac and 23 year employee of Baron Philippe de Rothschild, making him technical director of Château Clauzet. Respecting the individual terroirs is the name of the game now at Clauzet. Careful attention is paid to each plot throughout the year, and the fruit selection is strict." Importer
