Château Clarisse “Vieilles Vignes”, Puisseguin Saint Emilion

Our iconique cuvée, made of our oldest Merlot vines ( some of them being 70 y.o), blend with Caberent Franc (and Carménère since 2019, traditionnal Bordeaux grape variety). The nose is very intense on ripped black fruits and soft spices. The palate is rich, concentrated, velvety almost jammy. A beautiful harmony and a very long finale with oaky and vanillla notes. A very long ageing potential . Excellent pairing with string taste meats such as game.

Neal Martin

89-91/100

“Fresh and harmonious fruit, black cherry and spices. Creamy and pure palate, beautiful aromas of black fruit with fullness and lengthening. A charming Clarisse. bravo!”

Jancis Robinson

16/20

Rather fruity and sumptuous. Real attack and lift. Interest and some depth though it’s definitely not more than medium bodied.

Note: 16/20

Wine Spectator

89-92/100

Features a sappy edge, with blueberry and plum paste notes studded with anise and fruitcake accents, kept lively with a good bramble detail on the finish. A small property where Stéphane Derenoncourt consults; worth keeping an eye on.

Note: 89-92

Decanter

16.75/20

Very good colour, lovely fragrance on the nose and more length than Clarisse on the palate, quite rich and succulent yet totally balanced, the aroma is so good that the palate just flows afterwards with ripeness, lift and fragrance, a beautifully made wine, very expressive of its vineyard.

Note: 16.75/20
