Clos L'Eglise, Pomerol, 2005

  Clos l'Eglise

This neighbour of Clinet and L’Eglise-Clinet, whose 6ha of vines are made up of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Franc, normally produces a wine of great concentration, but the 2005 is markedly fresher and more floral in character. It has a pretty nose, soft fruity palate and good tannin management. The fruit is dark forest fruit is rich and chocolatey, and the finish is focused. Very good.

Contains Sulphites.

About Clos l'Eglise

There are just 6 hectares of vines at Clos L’Eglise planted with 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Franc on clay and gravel soils. Helene Garcin-Leveque has invested heavily in this estate. With such exceptional terroir it is probably only a matter of time before this 1250 case cuvee becomes one of the superstars of the commune.

Appellation: Lalande de Pomerol

The region produces Merlot-dominated wines which can offer great value similar in style to the wines of Pomerol but with less concentration. The soils are gravely and well-drained.
