  • What the experts say...

    Le 1989 (...), d'un grenat profond ambré sur le bord, [est] doté de doux arômes de chocolat et de cerise noire confiturée, ainsi que de saveurs précoces, opulentes et capiteuses, étayées par une faible acidité. Ce Pomerol charnu, d'une excellente, voire d'une extraordinaire concentration, présente encore des notes de cèdre et d'épices après une certaine aération. (...) Source : Robert Parker (11/96)

    Cuvée presentation

    The wines are aged for an average of 18 months in oak barrels, with a proportion of new wood that varies depending on the vintage. Eglise Clinet produces a maximum of 1500 cases each year, of a refined, distinguished wine, that reaches maturity after between five and fifteen years. Note that the property carries out a drastic selection procedure, not hesitating to downgrade a substantial proportion of the harvest for use in its second wine, La Petite Eglise, for which there is also great demand.

    Information about domain Château l'Église Clinet

    Eglise Clinet is one of the micro-properties scattered through the appellation. Little known, it produces one of Pomerol's best wines. The vineyard has belonged to the Durantou family for many years. Formed during the 19th century near the Eglise Saint Jean in Pomerol, it is made up of plots from the Clos de L'Eglise (that has belonged to the family since the 18th century) to which were added some vines purchased from Château Clinet. The vineyard benefits from an excellent terroir, made up of gravel and clay, with well-drained soil on a slight slope. Well-oriented, the vines escaped the terrible frost of 1956, and also those of 1985 and 87. The vines today have an average age of more than 40 years old. The varieties planted are traditional for Pomerol, with a high proportion of Merlot (85%) combined with Cabernet Franc (15%). The property only uses natural fertilizer (organic compost) to treat the vines. After the harvests, the grapes are completely destemmed.
