2014 Clos L'Eglise 75CL
Wine Rating: RP 92 points
Drink by: 2020 - 2035
The 2014 Clos l'Eglise has a tightly wound bouquet, quite backward as you might expect, with broody black cherry, black truffle, and touches of orange peel.
The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, crisp and tensile with a gentle grip in the mouth, touches of allspice and clove emerging towards the nicely structured and linear finish that lingers in the mouth. This is a well-crafted Clos l'Eglise that I suspect will have much more to give after three or four years in bottle.
"In the 18th century, Clos L’Eglise with its 14 ha was a very large estate for Pomerol, ahead of a dozen Crus which formed and still form “the heart of Pomerol”.
The history of Clos L’Eglise is linked to that of the vineyards “a Clinet”, a name that designates both place and ownership. The property was named Clos L’Eglise and, with divisions on inheritance, the estate was split in two, with the original estate, Clos L’Eglise (Rouchut family) on one side and Clos L’Eglise Clinet (Mauleon family) on the other. There is, therefore, a centuries-old continuity of viticulture at Clos L’Eglise."
