2011 LA PETITE ÉGLISE. Pomerol, Bordeaux (Magnum)

Bin:  899

Alcohol percentage:  14%

Area:

This is the ‘second wine’ of the renowned Église Clinet. It’s 100% Merlot mostly from a separate vineyard next to La Grave à Pomerol, with a few barrels from Église Clinet itself. 850 cases produced, aged in 50% new oak.

Press review:

“It has a refined bouquet with pure blackberry and raspberry with well-integrated creamy new oak that does not impede upon the fruit profile. With time it offers a touch of cedar that is very attractive. The palate is medium-bodied with impressive balance and a silky smooth texture. It has some oak to subsume so it will need 3-4 years in bottle, though it does not have the tension or persistency one can find in the 2009 or 2010. Still, this is very fine and probably will be good value. Tasted April 2012. Score: 89/91” – Neal Martin, RobertParker.com.
“The second wine of L’Eglise Clinet is better than many châteaux’s top wines in 2011. This is extremely fine and aromatic, more open than it often is at such a young age, with sweet fruitcake and red cherries on the palate, filigree tannins and a classy, perfumed finish. It’s denser than it seems at first, and should age well. 10+ years. Score: 95” – Tim Atkin MW
