Tasting Note:

Denis described the vintage as 'very hot, a bit of water, and then a fine Indian summer, for the best of good vintages'. Produced from 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, the 2014 L'Eglise Clinet is serious and introspective - anyone looking for a blowsy, upfront style of Pomerol should look away. This will require considerable patience. A touch of reduction, reserved initially, but there is some florality and then some glorious crème de mûre fruit, Sanguinello orange intertwined with a complex mineral core and a salty earthy quality. This is classical and serious with lots of grippy extraction and a brooding tannic structure. One for purists with time on their side!
