2019 – Château Clarisse Vieilles Vignes – Robert Parker Wine Advocate – 90

From a part of the appellation where there’s a resurgence of limestone. Offering up aromas of cherries, sweet berries, licorice, dark chocolate and fruitcake, it’s medium to full-bodied, lively and seamless, it’s pretty core of fruit framed by fine, powdery tannins. This is a fine effort. Reviewed by : William Kelley Drink Date : 2021 – … >> Lire la suite

2019 – Château Clarisse Vieilles Vignes – Jancis Robinson – 16.5/20

A little stinky on the nose – drains. Les plush and less glossy fruit than the regular bottling. Drying tannins. But plenty tucked in for the longer term and some rather exciting intensity of dark fruit and minerals at the core.

2019 – Château Clarisse Vieille Vignes – Jean Marc Quarin – 16-17,5/20

Parmi les 71 « Excellents Vins » Couleur sombre, intense, pourpre et jeune. Nez très aromatique, au fruité pur, mûr et subtil. Moelleux en entrée de bouche, très aromatique au milieu, avec beaucoup de goût, le vin caresse constamment le palais. Il s’achève sur une finale longue au grain fin. C’est rare sur l’appellation Puisseguin St Emilion. … >> Lire la suite

2019 – Château Clarisse Vieilles Vignes – Vinous – Neal Martin – 91

The 2019 Cuvée Vieilles Vignes has a refined, generous bouquet of seductive raspberry and blueberry fruit, like the regular cuvée but with more oomph. The palate is medium-bodied with soft tannins, fleshy and generous, though curiously, it doesn’t quite have hte same vigor as the regular bottling. Still, there is fine persistence here.

2019 – Château Clarisse Puisseguin-Saint-Emilion – Vert de Vin – Jonathan Choukroun – 90/91

Le nez offre de la gourmandise. On y retrouve des notes de mûre écrasée, de fraise écrasée et plus légèrement de petits fruits pulpeux associés à des touches de vanille Bourbon ainsi qu’à une pointe de noisette et à une très discrète pointe presque bergamote (en fond). La bouche est fruitée, équilibrée et offre de … >> Lire la suite

2019 – Château Clarisse Puisseguin-Saint-Emilion – Decanter – 90

Expressive and inviting nose, full of blackcurrants and blueberries. Gorgeous texture, velvety and generous tannins support the palate which brims with bright red cherries, blackberries and strawberries. The fruit is ripe, with a softly sweet jamminess underpinned by balanced acidity keeping the palate fresh and lively. Lovely quality on show here. One to drink now … >> Lire la suite

2019 – Château Clarisse Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux – Andreas Larsson – 93

Dense garnet core with a purple hue. Wild berries, chalky notes, violet, fine tobacco and mild oak notes. The palate shows good concentration and density, yet the polish is fine, plenty of powdery tannins, well integrated oak, lush dark fruit flavours and a long vibrant finish.  

2019 – Château Clarisse Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux – Decanter – 91

Floral element to the nose, a bit like potpourri – nicely aromatic. This has great freshness, showing bright, juicy strawberry and red cherry, with soft but present tannins that give a little weight and texture. Not a showstopper but energetic, approachable and easy to drink. Pretty, harmonious and with a minty fresh finish. Drinking Window 2022 – 2026
