Tasting Notes L'Eglise Clinet 2005

99

Tasted single blind at FINE magazine’s vertical in Dusseldorf. This has a ravishing sweet, decadent bouquet: very pure and more Merlot dominated than Cabernet Franc. There is a lot of puppy fat on this wine. The palate is full-bodied with succulent tannins, very supple and generous, layers of pure blackberry, cassis, a touch of bergamot and tobacco, brilliant delineation towards the finish that has extraordinary length. Tasted February 2011.

This is an elegant wine with wonderful length and beauty. Full yet reserved, showing loads of complexity. This is just starting to show its colors, but still needs at least eight years. Don’t touch this until 2018. Please be patient with this one. 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc.

A sensational effort from proprietor Denis Durantou, this 2005 is a compelling wine, but purchasers should wait at least a decade to begin the magical liquid tour. One of the monumental wines of the vintage, it boasts a dense purple color as well as a glorious perfume of caramelized blackberries, blueberries, and raspberries, a hint of toast in the backward, fully integrated oak, full body, and exceptional density and richness. Prodigiously concentrated, this layered, broad Pomerol reveals a seamless integration of acidity, tannin, alcohol, and wood. It is a massive, yet remarkably elegant wine that is as singular as it is exhilarating. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2040.
