Tasting Note:

Produced from a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, the 2018 L'Eglise Clinet is rather brutish. It's a large scale Pomerol with lots of dark brooding tannins and a smoky, stony character. It feels like there is a depth and authority here, but the fruit is not really evident. With aeration some damson and gravelly cassis notes emerge, but this feels deeply introverted, almost reclusive. The tannins are large scale and serious. It's a wine we want to love, but at this stage we will defer judgement. If it can flesh out during élevage it might be rather special.
