Château L'Eglise-Clinet 2018, Pomerol - 0,75L



"This is incredibly powerful with fantastic depth and length. It goes on for minutes. Full-bodied yet so tight and intense. Blackberries and hints of spice. It has such energy and persistence. It is a wine that makes you really reflect. Bravo. Tiny production."

A blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, Château L'Eglise-Clinet 2018 is a great, highly concentrated wine. Fine on the palate, velvety, silky, the wine quickly takes on character on slightly tight tannins that promise a fine tomorrow. 

Promising a great tasting in a decade or so.

The history of Château L'Eglise-Clinet dates back to the 19th century, when the Mauléon-Rouchut family acquired the vineyards and built the château in 1882. Since then, the estate has been passed down through several generations, perpetuating the know-how and passion for quality viticulture. Today, Noémie Durantou, the 4th generation, is at the helm of the château. 

L'Eglise-Clinet was born from the blending of several small parcels of Clos de l'Église and Domaine de Clinet, which the Durantou family had farmed for over a century. The first vintage marketed under the château label was 1955. 

The 4.5-hectare vineyard surrounds Saint-Jean de Pomerol church, in the heart of one of the most prestigious appellations on the right bank. The sloping, well-drained clay-gravel terroir is ideal for Merlot and Cabernet Franc - which account for 85% and 15% of the surface area respectively.

Cultivated using sustainable methods, these vines produce one of the finest Pomerols, close to Petrus. The vines, which are over 40 years old, are hand-picked by an experienced team before undergoing expert vinification. 

The exceptional vintages of Château l'Eglise-Clinet are the fruit of meticulous work in the vineyard and bear witness to the excellence of Pomerol wines.
