From: Pomeral, Bordeaux, France
Varietal: 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc
Chateau L'Eglise Clinet is now amongst the elite of Pomerol producers. Its vineyards were originally part of Chateau Clinet and Chateau Clos l`Eglise respectively, and the property came into being in the 1950s. L'Eglise Clinet has been owned and run by Denis Durantou since 1982. Its 5.5 hectares of vineyards are located on the Pomerol plateau, where the soils are rich in gravel, clay, sand, and iron. L'Eglise-Clinet's wine is typically a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc.
Tasting Notes: A remarkable wine in this vintage, L’Eglise Clinet’s 2008 has a color almost as dark as the barrel sample of 2010. Classic mocha and caramel-infused creme de cassis and black cherry notes, with hints of licorice and loamy soil soar from the glass of this opaque ruby/purple, aromatically compelling wine. Opulent, expansive, and savory, with a broad texture, a full-bodied mouthfeel, terrific purity, and a layered finish, this is another big, massive wine that transcends the vintage character, and will probably need 7-10 years of bottle age. It should keep for 20 or more years as well. -Wine Advocate
