The power of a velvety and delicate red wine from Pomerol

A sublime expression of the great terroir of Pomerol, the Clos L’Église 2018 stands as a reward for all the work done by the talented technical team of this emblematic property located on the right bank of Bordeaux.

The Clos L'Église 2018 is made from a blend of Merlot (80%) and Cabernet Franc (20%). At the tasting, the Clos L'Église 2018 reveals a dark purple colour and shimmering purple hues. Powerful, intensely expressive and very pure, the nose opens with notes of black berries, like blackcurrant and blackberry, followed by liquorice and chocolate notes. The mineral touches of graphite then appear and give way to hints of smoky earth. On the palate, the vintage reveals the full extent of its personality through a deliciously melting, mouth-coating material with a velvety texture. Great finesse and elegance characterise the tannic structure of this vintage. The mid-palate shines with bright, juicy fruit, stretching into a long, spicy and powerful finish. A great vintage of Clos L'Église which will evolve wonderfully over the years.

Parker : 94-96 / 100
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2018 Clos l'Eglise is a final blend composed of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc; the Merlot was harvested September 19-20, and the Cabernet Franc was harvested on October 10. Deep garnet-purple colored, it explodes on the nose with bold, expressive plum preserves, blueberry compote, mincemeat pie and sandalwood with nuances of lilacs, woodsmoke, Indian spices and dusty soil. Full-bodied, rich, velvety and decadently fruited in the mouth, it offers layer upon layer of voluptuous fruit, finishing long and spicy.
