POMEROL In 1882, Mr Mauléon-Rouchut, great great grandfather of Denis Durantou, brought together different plots of Clos L’Eglise and Domaine de Clinet, which his family had acquired in the 18th century, to make up a 4.5 hectare vineyard around the church of Saint John of Pomerol. TERROIR Clay and gravel without excess water thanks to the natural slopes of the plots and the century-old drainage network. GRAPE VARIETIES Spared by the recent frosts of 1956, 1985 and 1987, the Merlot plants (85%) and the Cabernet Franc plants (15%) have reached an average age of 40 years. PRUNING AND DENSITY "Bordelaise" and Single Guyot pruning techniques, organic compost every 5 years, 6,500 plants per hectare.

Whiff of truffles and leather early, needs a lot of time to open up to a dense fruit finish which is is a bit abrupt

...Tangy dark berries, smoke and roast coffee on the nose, plus a vaguely gamey, truffley element. Almost painfully intense and sappy today, but this very dense, very sweet wine is beginning to close down. A huge wine whose finishing fruit buries its... Stephen Tanzer. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1995 Eglise Clinet, L' 750ml
