La Clotte, Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 2022

La Clotte

Case Format: 6x75cl

Max score: 97.0

Château La Clotte remains “a true, Saint-Émilion insider’s secret wine” (The Wine Cellar Insider). Laced with piquant minerality and enveloped in a rounded opulence, this is a truly gorgeous wine. At just three hectares, La Clotte is one of Bordeaux’s hidden gems. The vineyards are planted with Merlot (c.85%), Cabernet Franc (c.15%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (c.5%) and are located on Saint-Émilion’s limestone plateau, not far from the illustrious Château Ausone. The grapes are then harvested by hand before ageing in 50% new French oak barrels for roughly 15 months, depending on the vintage. Château La Clotte is best after about 5-7 years of ageing, with peak maturity reach between 8-20 years of age after the vintage.



Jeb Dunnuck

Coming from vines southwest of the village and 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc, the 2022 Château La Clotte is one of my favorites in the lineup from the Vauthier family in 2022. Ripe black cherries, red plums, espresso, baking spices, and a beautiful sense of minerality all define the aromatics, and its medium to full-bodied, with nicely integrated oak, ripe tannins, and a great finish.

Lisa Perrotti-Brown

A blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc, La Clotte 2022 is deep garnet-purple in color. It sashays out with provocative notes of spiced plums, boysenberry preserves, and potpourri, leading to hints of star anise and black olives. The full-bodied palate is rich, plush, and perfumed, delivering fantastic freshness and a long, wonderfully pure finish.
