2012 CHATEAU CLARISSE (en bouteilles) – ANTONIO GALLONI NOTATION : 88

The 2012 Clarisse is gorgeous. Round, creamy and generous in the glass, the 2012 offers plenty of super-ripe fruit to match its inviting personality. Sweet floral and spiced notes grace the mid-weight finish. Drink this open-knit, succulent wine over the next handful of years. This is a terrific showing from Clarisse and consulting winemakers Stéphane Derenoncourt and Romain Bocchio. The blend is 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc.
