Estate Notes

Château L'Eglise Clinet 2015 is one of the wines of the Bordeaux vintage and was purchased in its original wooden case.

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

"the 2015 L'Eglise Clinet comes bursting out of the glass with a gorgeous perfume of exotic spices and potpourri over a core of blueberry compote, red currant jelly, spiced black plums and mulberries with touches of unsmoked cigars, powdered cinnamon and licorice. Big, rich and full-bodied, the palate offers exquisite harmony, packed with exotic spice and red and black fruit layers, finishing on an epically long-lasting mineral note. In an understated word: WOW." eRobertParker.com

"The 2015 L'Eglise-Clinet is one of the wines of the vintage. Even better from bottle than it was from barrel, the 2015 towers out of the glass with stunning power and richness. Super-ripe black cherry, plum, licorice, tobacco and menthol are some of the many notes pulse through this riveting Pomerol. There is plenty of structure, but the tannins are nearly buried by the sheer intensity of the fruit. Hints of lavender, smoke, spice, licorice reappear to round out the finish. L'Eglise-Clinet is 90% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, aged in 70% new oak. More importantly, the 2015 is a total pleasure bomb. This a fabulous wine from Denis Durantou. Don't miss it." eRobertParker.com
