Bordeaux Futures 2020 estimated arrival Spring 2023
95-96 James Suckling
"A classy, refined red, highlighting the success in Pomerol for the vintage. It’s full and tight with layered tannins that are polished and gorgeous." (5/2021)
91-93 Jeb Dunnuck
"The deep ruby/purple-hued 2020 Château Guillot-Clauzel has a classy, textbook Pomerol perfume of ripe red and blue fruits, leafy herbs, sappy spring flowers, and chocolate. With medium to full-bodied richness, it has a wonderful sense of elegance, polished tannins, and the depth as well as purity that's common from this appellation in 2020. This is one sexy Pomerol to drink on release and over the following 15+ years." (5/2021)
93-95 Wine Advocate
"Composed of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc, the 2020 Guillot Clauzel has an alcohol of 14.5% and a pH of 3.72. It is aging in French oak barriques, 50% new. Opaque purple-black colored, it bursts from the glass with bold, opulent scents of crushed black cherries, warm black plums and violets, giving way to hints of raspberry leaves, Sichuan pepper and anise. The medium to full-bodied palate is chock-full of ripe, rich, decadent black fruits with loads of red fruit and floral sparks and a backbone of velvety tannins, with great tension to boot, finishing long and spicy. The consultant winemaker here is Guillaume Thienpont (of Vieux Chateau Certan), and he is doing an amazing job of breathing fresh life into this promising Pomerol site." (5/2021)
