"Extremely floral aromas, as well as dark berries, blueberries, black truffle and subtle, wet earth. Full-bodied and refined with ultra-fine tannins. Crushed stone. Caressing finish. Second wine of of L'Église Clinet and always from the same two parcels of vineyards. Drink after 2023." JamesSuckling.com

"The medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2016 La Petite Eglise features beautiful black cherries, mulberries and warm black plums scents with touches of underbrush, cigar box and fragrant soil. Medium to full-bodied, it fills the palate with complex, intense black and red fruit layers with tons of savory sparks coming through on the long, plushly textured finish."

"The 2016 La Petite Eglise is bright and beautifully lifted, with striking floral and citrus notes that lend an extra kick of brightness to the Merlot fruit. In 2016, La Petite Eglise is fresh, aromatically nuanced and absolutely impeccable in its overall balance, all of which make it a real joy to taste today. Denis Durantou gave the 2016 12 months in barrel, with about 50% new oak." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"The 2016 La Petite Eglise was picked on October 5 and matured in 50% new oak. It has a well-defined bouquet of blackberry, raspberry coulis and rose petal aromas; more sous-bois elements emerge with time in the glass. The fresh palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin and hints of oyster shell toward the persistent finish. I like the symmetry here. A wonderful La Petite Eglise that will give 10 years of pleasure, possibly more." Neal Martin, Vinous.com

"Super-juicy and so much flesh it almost covers the structure. Sweet ink. Lovely stuff. Just falls away a little bit on the end." JancisRobinson.com
