Saint Emilion - Puisseguin - Montagne - Lussac • Côtes de Bordeaux
Bought in 2009 by Olivia and Didier Le Calvez and renamed by their daughter’s first name, this magnificient vineyard of 21 ha is situated on the pitoresque plateau of Saint-Emilion .
A famous Bordeaux right bank wine consultant, Stephane Derenoncourt and a good friend of Didier Le Calvez, joined this family project offering its wines all the elegance, power and sensuality as a result of a fine balance between Merlot and Cabernet Franc. The entire cycle of our winemaking is based on the respect of the nature, its authenticity and balance. Château Clarisse obtained organic certification in 2019 and is now turning towards to biodynamics thanks to the tailor-made support of Jacques Fourès. Needless to say, that the challenge set at the beginning of this adventure, to produce a high quality wine from year to year, by now has successufully been take up.
Among the connoisseurs, the Clarisse wine is a reference to the powerful and dense wine, but also velvety and silky at the same time. “This shows real depth and power with so much vine bark, mushroom and currant aromas and flavors. Full and chewy. Excellent. Old vine wine that is truly a dream. Best ever.” (2015 Château Clarisse Vieilles Vignes – James Suckling Notation :94-95)

It was so refreshing to see what measures are taken to grow the grapes organically and take good care of the land. They really do things properly here. Unsurprisingly the wine tasted great too!
