Tasting Notes

Vinous 95

The 2021 L’Eglise-Clinet was picked September 27-29, a rapid harvest within three days; winemaker Noemie Durantou told me she wanted to beat the forecasted rain that would have diluted the fruit. Raised in 75% new oak, this has a less concentrated, mineral-driven bouquet that bides its time, offering nuanced pine cone scents with aeration. The palate is clearly built around elegance, with its finely chiseled tannins and wonderful crushed stone notes. Perhaps a more streamlined l’Eglise-Clinet, showing wonderful precision. This Pomerol never tries to outdo its limitations or ape previous vintages, lending it an intangible sense of honesty. Beautiful. (14.0% alcohol) [Neal Martin, 12/05/2022]

Anticipated maturity: 2029-2060

Robert Parker 93-96

A deep, serious wine, the 2021 L’Eglise Clinet unwinds in the glass with notions of wild berries and plums mingled with dark chocolate, sweet loamy soil, warm spices, violets and black truffle. Full-bodied, concentrated and muscular, it’s rich and layered, with a concentrated core of fruit, lively acids and plenty of ripe, powdery tannin that nods to its origins in a sector of Pomerol capable of producing some of the appellation’s most structured, long-lived wines. It’s a blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc. [William Kelley, 29/04/2022]
