Bordeaux Wine Clos Payrol 2008

  • There are only 6 bottles of this wine available in Australia and only through Bordeaux & Beyond.

    A very rare and high quality wine from the 2008 vintage in Bordeaux made by Philippe Baillarguet, the winemaker at Chateau Ausone since 1997. Philippe is vinifying two special, small batch wines, Clos des Baies in Saint-Emilion in a vineyard downslope from Pavie Hill, and Clos Payrol in Pomerol on the plateau, close to the church. Clos Payrol is a 100% Merlot wine made from a tiny plot that is in the heart of quality Pomerol vineyards near Petrus, L'Evangile, Le Constelliante and Vieux Chateau Certan, and close to the tolling church in the village. The soil composition on this gradually sloping plateau is clay and gravel, with the iron subsoil composition that gives Pomerol its unique character profile of violets, and is thought to be a factor in the long ageing potential of wines from this area.
