91 Points VertdeVIn, who writes well on Clos Rene 2014. 'The nose is quite powerful as well as relatively elegant and aromatic. It reveals notes of crushed raspberry and slight notes of wild strawberry and blackberry combined with a touch of cassis, a discreet hint of flowers, tobacco as well as a discreet touch of spices, a woody hint and an imperceptible hint of bell pepper. The mouth is fruity, mineral, elegant, fresh, relatively gourmand, a bit fleshy, and offers an acid frame, juiciness, and a good definition. In the mouth, this wine expresses notes of fleshy raspberry, fleshy strawberry and slight notes of blackberry, sour cherry and plum associated with a hint of liquorice, small touches of toasted wood and very discreet hints of chocolate tips (In the background). The tannins are fine and well-built.' Edited.

Also, 91 Vinous, who writes, 'Dark red cherries, tobacco, earthiness and brown spices are some of the notes that meld together in the 2014 Clos René. Succulent, racy and juicy to the core, 2014 should drink nicely upon release. The creamy, textured finish is particularly enticing. Edited.
