Clos de Clocher 1982, Pomerol

One of the oldest bottles in my own cellar, we enjoyed this fine bottle of Pomerol, Clos de Clocher1982 with some juicy thick cut lamb chops.

The cork pulled notably cleanly, some of these old bottles are quite tricky to extract the cork from without it splitting or shredding.

The wine poured very clear, a luscious fine red colour, fine red not tawny. Very clear with a clean almost velvety taste and a lasting after-taste.

My companion discerned a mustiness which he compared to dark chocolate or even coffee.
