L’Eglise Clinet (and other wines from Denis Durantou)
17 June 2016

After the big three of Pomerol: Petrus, Lafleur and Le Pin, L’Eglise Clinet is the Chateau constantly nipping at their heels, vying for equal glory. In fact, in some vintages such as 2005 and 2012, Denis Durantou’s flagship wine takes the plaudits and the crown. This is an estate that regularly achieves scores in the high nineties from The Wine Advocate, and occasionally pulls out a 100. The 2015 is all the things we have come to expect. It is a large-scale, multifaceted wine with equal parts grace and power. We feel that 2015 with its plushness of fruit and considerable pedigree will rival the wonderful 2005, 2009 and 2010 vintages. And at £1900 per dozen, it is a full £800 cheaper than the least of these comparable wines.

Even more compelling is the quite outstanding Petite Eglise, the second wine of L’Eglise Clinet. At £290 per dozen, you will not find a finer Pomerol for the money. If you missed them earlier in the campaign, we still have some cases of Denis’ excellent satellite wines: Montlandrie, Les Cruzelles, La Chenade and Saintayme. For those who haven’t tasted these beauties before; they represent some of the best values from Bordeaux. They are super-smart, modern examples of what can be achieved from some of the right bank’s lesser known appellations.    Read More
