Medium-bodied with very fine-textured tannins. Delicious sweet and salty and mineral character. Blackberries, violets, cloves, and dark olives. Peaches, too. All focused, fresh, and in balance. Long, seamless finish. 85% merlot and 15% cabernet franc. ~97-98 James Suckling
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. ~93-96 WA
A dark, serious brooding nose full of black fruits, truffle, rose, violet, and dark chocolate. The palate is different however giving succulent and lively red fruits - sweet/sour strawberries and red cherries, so fresh and sincere, so perfectly presented with the bitter touches balanced against sweetness, racy acidity, and fine tannins. An easy-to-like wine, with personality and style and just a feeling of pure joy about it! Not rich, heavy, or opulent but taking the most joyous elements from the vintage and putting them in the glass, still with structure and depth. Great winemaking on show by Noëmie Durantou Reilhac. Ageing in 70% new oak. Drinking Window 2027 - 2045 ~96 Decanter
The 2021 L'Eglise Clinet is a spherical, sensual Pomerol of uncommon depth and intensity. Racy and voluptuous, with terrific depth, the 2021 is striking. Creme de cassis, chocolate, new leather, spice, menthol, and licorice all build as the 2021 opens in the glass. The combination of power and finesse is remarkable. I especially admire the energy and focus in the 2021. This is the first vintage that includes a parcel of Cabernet Franc that was previously used for the Petite Eglise. ~94-96 Antoni Galloni, Vinous Media
