Estate Notes

Château l'Eglise Clinet 2010 is a stunning Pomerol - powerful and concentrated, yet elegant and refined - but much patience is required in the the cellar to realise its massive potential.

Winemaker Denis Durantou, has brought l’Eglise Clinet to the pinnacle of Pomerol producers with consistently stunning wines, yet you wouldn’t know it from his jovial, engaging, down-to-earth attitude.

Gazing across Denis' vines to the iconic Pomerol church, his château is set in absolute peace and tranquillity (a quaint, walled cemetery being his neighbour!), and it is easy to see why he has become so attached to this boutique estate.

Reviews

"...loaded with fabulous raw materials. The 2010 is a profound effort, but it needs to be forgotten for at least a decade. This opaque purple wine offers up notes of caramelized black currant and black cherry candies intermixed with some very high class, subtle vanillin and toast. Hints of licorice, mocha and perhaps even a touch of chocolate are also present in this full-bodied, super-duper, concentrated, classic wine, which has everything in perfect proportions. But in the finish, its whoppingly big tannins kick in and basically announce that drinking this wine now would be infanticide." eRobertParker.com

"Wild, superripe nose combines dark raspberry, black olive, smoked meat, mocha and sexy oak. Hugely rich and sweet but structured too, offering outstanding depth to its flavors of berries, dark chocolate, espresso, graphite and underbrush. Finishes with huge but noble tannins and outstanding persistence. As rich and concentrated as this is, it somehow maintains a light touch. A great expression of merlot with the sheer strength of material and structure for a long life in bottle." Stephen Tanzer, International Wine Cellar
