        Reviews:

        • Wine Advocate: The 2016 Clos du Clocher is medium to deep garnet-purple colored and very earthy on the nose with cigar box, forest floor, truffles and charcoal aromas with black cherries and baked red and black plums. Elegantly styled, the palate is medium-bodied with perfumed fruit, a fine-grained frame and a long refreshing finish.
        • Vinous: The 2016 Clos du Clocher is gorgeous. Blackberry jam, chocolate, new leather and licorice add to the wine's racy, plush feel. Even with all of its textural richness, the 2016 retains terrific energy. The new oak needs time to fully integrate, but that is not enough to keep the 2016 from being hugely appealing in the early going.

        Producer Information

        Jean-Baptiste Audy is family-run négociant firm based in Libourne and owner of a number of châteaux estates across Bordeaux's Right Bank (the appellations on the right bank of the Dordogne river), including properties in Pomerol, Lussac-Saint-Émilion and Lalande de Pomerol.
        Operating from its base on the Quai du Priourat on the very banks of the Dordogne in Libourne town (a historic négociant location – JP Janoueix is a neighbor and JP Moueix is a few doors down), Jean-Baptiste Audy also has exclusive trade and distribution partnerships with numerous châteaux.
        The company is perhaps best known for its ownership of wine estates in nearby appellations. These include:
        Clos de Clocher (Pomerol), a 4.6 hectare (11 acre) property divided into three plots on iron-rich clay soils, planted to 70 percent Merlot with the remainder Cabernet Franc just outside the hamlet of Catusseau, not far from Le Pin and Vieux Château Certan;
        Château Bonalgue (Pomerol), a 9.4 hectare (23 acre) estate at the southwestern end of the appellation, on the outskirts of Libourne, planted to 90 percent Merlot and ten percent Cabernet Franc;
        Château Monregard La Croix (Pomerol), a 1.3 hectare (3.2 acre) plot of Merlot that was originally part of the wider Clos du Clocher property but on sandier soils and is now vinified separately;
        Château du Courlat (Lussac-Saint-Émilion), one of Audy's top châteaux, the 17-hectare (42-acre) Courlat is planted predominantly to Merlot, with a fraction of Cabernet Franc. The estate also produces Cuvée Jean-Baptise from the best parcels on the property which is aged for 20 months in French oak. A rosé – Le Rosé du Courlat – is also produced;
        Château Les Hauts-Conseillants (Lalande de Pomerol), a ten-hectare (25 acre) property covering two vineyards, one in Néac and one in Lalande de Pomerol, planted to around 90 percent Merlot and ten percent Cabernet Franc.
        For some of its estates, Audy employs the services of renowned enologist Michel Rolland's wine consultancy firm.
        The company was founded in 1906 by Jean-Baptiste Audy, and today is run by his great-grandson, Jean-Baptiste Bourotte. As well as distribution deals with a number of estates across the wider Bordeaux region, the firm also produces a number of négoce labels including the likes of Audy Bordeaux rouge and Jean Baptiste Audy Brut – a Crémant de Bordeaux.
