THE STORY TO KNOW

Clos Rene is one of the older estates in Pomerol, dating back to the mid 18th century.

At some point in the early 1940’s, Clos Rene was managed and co-owned by Pierre Lasserre. Pierre Lasserre was at the time in charge of managing the property for the Durantou family that would become Chateau L'Eglise Clinet.

Today, Clos Rene is owned by both the Garde family and the Lasserre family. Clos Rene was one of the last producers in Pomerol to bottle their own production. It was the normal practice during the early part of the 20th century for chateaux to deliver their wine in barrel to the negociants who did the bottling.
The 12 hectare Pomerol vineyard of Clos Rene is planted to 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 10% Malbec. With 10% Malbec in their vineyards, they have the largest plantings in Pomerol as well as one of the largest plantings of Malbec in the Right Bank.

The vineyard is located in the far west of Pomerol. Just south of Lalande de Pomerol and not far from Chateau L'Enclos. The terroir is mostly gravel and sand with some iron deposits in the soil.
