2012 La Petite Eglise 75CL
The bouquet is certainly more bashful than the 2011 - like the Montlandrie, you must coax the aromas from the glass: wild hedgerow, black fruit and even a touch of cedar.
The palate is medium-bodied with a supple core of pure red berry fruit mingling with minerals - a stony character to this wine - very expressive and animated. The finish is refined and displays superb length for a second wine. If I taste a better value Right Bank wine, I would be astonished.
"The second label made in Château L’Eglise Clinet. The estate is owned by Denis Durantou, ambitious and passionate winemaker, acclaimed as “man of the soil”.
For Durantou, La Petite Eglise is not a second wine but considers it as a different expression of his vineyards."
