En Primeur Château La Clotte will be available for delivery or storage once it lands in the UK, usually two years following the en primeur offer.
The three hectares of Château La Clotte have been owned by the Vauthier family, owners of Châteaux Ausone, since 2015. The estate is positioned between Châteaux Ausone and Pavie-Macquin on St-Emilion’s coveted limestone plateau. Alain Vauthier was keen to add La Clotte’s incredibly similar and equally excellent terroir to his holdings. The new owners are helping the estate increase in popularity and reputation, and whilst the wines are yet to achieve the prices of its sibling estate, it is undoubtedly in the right hands and heading in the right direction. Merlot is the main grape, along with small amounts of the two Cabernets and the wine is made by the same team as Ausone.
En Primeur pricing is per case as specified and excludes UK duty and VAT, which will be charged at the prevailing rate when the wine is released from bond for delivery. Bonded storage is available. Onward delivery or transfer is not included and can be quoted for on request. Free delivery on orders over £100 does not apply to bonded or en primeur wines.
