About:  Château L'Eglise-Clinet is now amongst the elite of Pomerol producers. Its vineyards were originally part of Château Clinet and Château Clos l`Eglise respectively, and the property came into being in the 1950s.

L'Eglise-Clinet has been owned and run by Denis Durantou since 1982. Its 5.5 hectares of vineyards are located on the Pomerol plateau, where the soils are rich in gravel, clay, sand and iron. The vines have a high average age of around 45 years, with a proportion of them dating back to pre-1956, having escaped the brutal frosts of that year.

L'Eglise-Clinet's wine is typically a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. The grapes are vinified in a combination of concrete vats and stainless steel vats. The wine is then aged in small oak barriques (50-70% new) for 18 months.

Tasting Notes:  This is a stunning blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc is an dark purple color, a gorgeous mix of clean black raspberries, blackcurrants and blackberry with added floral notes and a tiny bit of truffle, Its is full-bodied, luxurious and a benefits from an excellent vintage. Great presence on the palate with a long finish.
