"The 2015 La Grande Clotte, Michel and Dany Rolland's Sauvignon-based blend, is terrific. A dollop of Muscadelle adds an exotic floral/tropical character to the apricot, chamomile and lightly honeyed notes. Rich and ample in feel, with notable textural richness, the 2015 exudes harmony and class. Readers should expect a fairly intense viscous white. I would prefer to drink the 2015 sooner rather than later." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"Very perfumed and beautiful with blackberry and blueberry aromas that follow through to a medium to full body, firm and silk tannins and a chalky and limestone undertone. Peppery edge. Lightly chewy finish. Give it three or four years to soften." JamesSuckling.com

"Pauline Vauthier considers the 2015 La Clotte to be the family’s maiden vintage after finishing the work in the winery after its acquisition in 2014 (there is also an ongoing replanting program). The oak barrel has integrated into the fruit since en primeur, though I would argue that it does not quite possess the sophistication of the Vauthier’s Haut Simard or Moulin St. Georges at the moment. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, a fine thread of acidity, very pure in the mouth with blackberry, raspberry and veins of spice. There is pleasing depth to this La Clotte and impressive precision toward the finish. I have the feeling that La Clotte is going to be an exceptional wine in the future. This is the first step toward reaching those heights. Anticipated maturity: 2020 - 2035." Neal Martin
