Clos l'Eglise 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

91-93 Points, Stephen Tanzer, Vinous: "Saturated medium ruby. Exotic kirsch, violet and bitter chocolate aromas. Sweet, bright and perfumed; really coats the mouth with concentrated, explosive fruit. Very intensely flavored but also fleshy and pliant. Finishes with big, chewy tannins and a seductive, lingering chocolatey flavor. Wonderfully pure and scented Pomerol that tastes like it's from a year with full ripeness. A strong early showing. This well-situated chateau has been on fire in recent vintages." 05/05 91 Points, Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate: "Made in a very forward style, the 2004 Clos l’Eglise offers sweet mocha-infused black raspberry and chocolate cherry-like fruit in its intense aromatics. In the mouth, it is pure silk, medium-bodied, and beautifully concentrated with no hard edges. Filled with sensual fruit, glycerin, and body, this is a delicious, food and consumer-friendly, complex Pomerol that should drink beautifully for 12-14 years." 06/07

Shows intense blackberry, with other dark fruits and just a hint of coffee. Full-bodied, with lovely fruit, chewy tannins and a long, fruity, caressing finish. Best after 2010. 1,575 cases made. -JS Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2004 Clos l'Eglise 750ml
