TASTING NOTES

"...notes of baked black plums, chocolate-covered cherries and blueberry preserves with hints of chargrill, mocha and aniseed plus a touch of tar...a powerhouse of crunchy, vibrant black fruit..." (98 points) Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, March 2020

"Extremely enticing aromas of blackberries, brambleberries, sweet tobacco, bark and mushrooms follow through to a medium to full body that grows on the palate and crescendoes to medium, round tannins, juicy fruit and a long, flavorful finish. Rolls along the palate. Excellent, persistent finish. Try after 2024, but already a joyous glass." JamesSuckling.com

"The 2017 L’Eglise-Clinet was picked from 12 to 22 September for the Merlot and on 22 September for the Cabernet Franc. Denis Durantou told me that it is matured in 70% new oak. This has a stunning, mineral-driven bouquet with tightly packed blackcurrant and raspberry fruit, and hints of black truffle that emerge with time. The palate has a satin-like texture on the entry with a fine bead of acidity. This defies the growing season in terms of its concentration with layers of black fruit on the saline finish. It does not quite have the length of the 2018 - but it will give 30 years of drinking pleasure." Neal Martin, Vinous.com

"Black core with purple crimson rim. A hint of oak char on the nose but underneath that is pure black fruit and a creamy character. Smooth and rounded on the palate, the fruit and the oak already well melded. The finish is darker and more savoury, the oak char closing the circle. But the harmony is very good. Not as charming as La Petite Église but longer-term in potential." Julia Harding MW, JancisRobinson.com
