A Bordeaux Blend Dry Red Table wine from Puisseguin St Emilion, Bordeaux, France
Review by Robert Parker
Drink 2013 – 2020
This dark ruby/plum-colored wine offers notes of dusty, loamy soil intermixed with unsmoked cigar tobacco, red and black currants, a hint of crushed rock, and very good depth, purity and balance. The overall impression is one of elegance and flavor intensity. Consume it over the next 5-7 years. A very good, possibly excellent wine, the 2012 Clarisse was cropped at 31 hectoliters per hectare, and made from a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. The natural alcohol came in at 13.5% The general manager of the famous Bristol Hotel in Paris is the proprietor of this property, and Stéphane Derenoncourt is the consultant. Both wines are an exclusivity of American broker Jeffrey M. Davies.
