A truly exceptional ex-Chateau offer from Eglise Clinet
Last week we were honoured to welcome Denis Durantou to St James’ Street to host a dinner with wines from his very own cellar, all in magnum. Those lucky enough to attend were treated to three glorious flights from the 80s, 90s and 2000s. Denis generosity, charm and wit made it a truly memorable evening.
But Denis’ generosity didn’t end there… We were delighted to receive an ex-Chateau offer from him upon his return to Pomerol. The wines in this offer are all from the Durantou family reserves and will be relabelled and repackaged by the Chateau this October before shipment. It is a terrific offer taking in a smart selection of vintages from 1993 to 2009 including the extraordinary 2005, which wowed us over dinner.
This is an exceptional opportunity to purchase pristine stock which has never left the Chateau. The prices look more than reasonable, especially considering the provenance and that Eglise Clinet is now firmly established as one of the very best addresses in Pomerol. These are complex, seductive expressions of Merlot and Cabernet Franc, which deserve to be in the finest cellars.
