70% Merlot 20% Cabernet Franc 10% Malbec
The Clos René, located in the Pomerol appellation, has belonged to the Garde family for more than a century. Jean-Marie Garde currently runs this 18-hectare vineyard planted with 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 10% Malbec. The domain is largely under-valued, considering the quality and regularity of its cuvées. The wines of Clos René are well made, in a classical and elegant style and with a wonderful aging ability, while being reasonable priced.Developing aromas of black fruit and spices, this is a particularly seductive wine that needs a few years to reach its full potential.
The winery owns 18 hectares and produces 82,000 bottles per year. The Chateau belongs to the Garde family for more than century
