Press review:

“Since 1998, Chateau L’Eglise Clinet has been producing some of the finest wine in the Pomerol appellation. In some vintages it is as good, or better than Petrus or Chateau Lafleur! This is a concentrated, pure, rich, intense, aromatic, opulent and complex style of Bordeaux wine that demands over a decade of bottle age before it should be tasted. The wines age well. While it’s become expensive over the past few years, especially since the sublime 2005, this unique expression of Pomerol is as I said, among the finest wines of the Right Bank as well as in all of Bordeaux.” – www.thewinecellarinsider.com
94 points, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate – “Unquestionably the Pomerol of the vintage, the dense purple-colored 2007 l’Eglise-Clinet offers an astonishing display of rich, licorice and caramel-infused kirsch, black raspberry, and cassis fruit. Rich, full-bodied, and pure, with low acidity and ripe tannin, it is already offering delicious drinking, and should continue to do so for 15-20 years. Having just had the 1997, which is not as strong a wine as this 2007, that wine, from a very mediocre vintage, is still young. Kudos to proprietor Denis Durantou.”
