Château l'Eglise-clinet Red Bordeaux Blend Pomerol 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Robert Parker clearly thought that the 2007 L'Eglise Clinet was one of thewines of the vintage. The wine has the hallmark signs of Pomerol, with soft,fleshy dark fruit and good complexity. It will drink earlier than othervintages but should age majestically.
