Estate Notes

Château l'Eglise Clinet 2011 is a rich, full-bodied Pomerol - powerful and concentrated, yet elegant and refined - it is drinking well now, but will reward more time in bottle.

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.


"With a dense ruby/purple color is followed by a pure nose of mulberries, cherry liqueur and spring flowers, but no hint of oak, this full-bodied, opulent, rich beauty exhibits impressive purity, texture, richness and length. Not as structured or tannic as Trotanoy, it moves more in the direction of the opulence and flashy, showy fruit of Hosanna and Petrus." Robert Parker

"Good bright ruby. Knockout nose combines crushed raspberry, stone, iron, mint, violet and coffee. Very pure, precise and bright on the palate, with deep dark berry fruit flavors complicated by minerals, flowers and cocoa. The bright acidity extends the flavors nicely on the long finish. Cool and restrained Pomerol, with mounting tannins that call for patience." Ian d'Agata
