Clos l'Eglise 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

93 Points, Neal Martin, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate: "The Clos l’Eglise 2008 is taut, backward and earthy on the nose, adorned with black rather than red fruit with some oak to be absorbed. The palate is medium-bodied with a supple entry. There is a fine bead of acidity here, rounded with clean dark cherry and cassis fruit. Although this is a little linear at the moment, it should blossom into a seriously fine Pomerol. Tasted May 2012" 90-93 Points, Ian d'Agata, Vinous: "(80% merlot and 20% cabernet franc) If this wine were a tapestry, you couldn't stop yourself from running your fingers through it. Clos L'Eglise can count on one of Pomerol's oldest parcels of cabernet franc (45 years old), and its merlot isn't young either at 35 years of age." 05/09 91 Points, Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate: "A strong effort for the vintage, the 2008 Clos l’Eglise offers notes of espresso roast, Asian plum sauce, black currants and a hint of oak in a fleshy, medium to full-bodied style with outstanding purity, texture and length. It can be drunk now and over the next 10-12 years. Kudos to proprietress Helene Garcin and winemaking consultant Dr. Alain Raynaud." 05/11

An intense yet delicate effort, this Pomerol property had a tiny production in 2008, and the levels of concentration and polyphenols are as high as, or surpass those in 2005, 2001, 2000, and 1998, the most recent top vintages of Clos l-Eglise.
