Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 93
James Suckling
Lots of blackberries, blackcurrants and some black olives on the nose and the palate. Medium to full body, firm tannins and a fresh finish. Solid 2020.
Barrel Sample: 92-93
D 90
Decanter
Attractive depth to the red fruits right from the first nose with black chocolate shavings and mocha on the attack. This has been carefully constructed, and really starts well. Plenty of tannic structure, classic with Médoc character, a little short on the finish. Michel Rolland consultant here for over 35 years, Yann Monties technical director across all the Clement Fayat estates (that includes La Dominique in St-Emilion).

Chateau Clement Pichon, France
Chateau Clement Pichon Winery Image
Located at the gateway to the city of Bordeaux, in the southern Médoc, the estate’s history goes back to the 14th century. At that time, it was a medieval seigneury that later belonged to the Sun King Louis XIV in person, who used it as a hunting lodge on two occasions.

The present-day chateau, one of the most impressive in the Médoc, was built 1880 by the the Barons Pichon in the pure Renaissance style, like Chambord and Chenonceaux. Clément Fayat acquired the chateau in 1976 and renamed it Clément Pichon in 1985. The 70 hectare estate (175 acres) includes a listed pond, a bird preserve, and 25 hectares (62 acres) of beautiful grounds, as well as a vineyard. Several works of contemporary art are scattered around the grounds.

Viticulture and winemaking are done in conjunction with the famous consultant Michel Rolland. The Fayat family also owns Chateau Fayat in Pomerol and Chateau La Dominique, a Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé

One of the most—if not the most—famous red wine regions of the world, the Medoc reaches from the city of Bordeaux northwest along the left bank of the Gironde River almost all the way to the Atlantic. Its vineyards climb along a band of flatlands, sandwiched between the coastal river marshes and the pine forests in the west. The entire region can only claim to be three to eight miles wide (at its widest), but it is about 50 miles long.

While the Medoc encompasses the Haut Medoc, and thus most of the classed-growth villages (Margaux, Moulis, Listrac, St-Julien, Pauillac and St. Estephe) it is really only those wines produced in the Bas-Medoc that use the Medoc appellation name. The ones farther down the river, and on marginally higher ground, are eligible to claim the Haut Medoc appellation, or their village or cru status.

While the region can’t boast a particularly dramatic landscape, impressive chateaux disperse themselves among the magically well-drained gravel soils that define the area. This optimal soil draining capacity is completely necessary and ideal in the Medoc's damp, maritime climate. These gravels also serve well to store heat in cooler years.

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
