  • Goedhuis, May 2007, Score: 88-90+

    This 2006 is a mirror image of the grand vin but as to be expected, a bit lighter. Medium to fullbodied, it offers a polished palate with fine tannins and succulent freshness. Its flavour of dark berry fruit and licorice are ample yet focused.A very pleasing wine.

  • Jancis Robinson, May 2007, Score: 16

    10,500 bottles produced. 100% Merlot from gravely clay soils. Mid crimson. Quite opulent on the nose though a firm spine. Chewy. Then very sandy dry tannins on the finish. Far from charming. Very dry and severe in fact. Austere though quite persistent finish.

Château l'Eglise-Clinet

The most famous of the Pomerol "Clinets", L'Eglise Clinet has been run by the Durantou family for 5 generations. It was the wonderful Denis Durantou who catapulted this château skywards when he took over in 1983. He very sadly died in 2020, but he leaves behind him an incredible legacy. This tiny flagship estate, now considered one of the superstars of Pomerol, is just over 4 hectares in size and is in the very capable hand...Read more

This tiny flagship estate, now considered one of the superstars of Pomerol, is just over 4 hectares in size and is in the very capable hands of two of Denis' daughters, Noémie and Constance, who continue to manage the property and build on their father's brilliant winemaking.Read less

Region

Pomerol

The small sub-region of Pomerol is situated north-east of the industrious city of Libourne. Pomerol's soils are predominately iron-rich clay with a smattering of gravel that produce wines with extraordinary power and depth. As a result of this clay-dominance, it has the highest percentage of Merlot planted in all of Bordeaux. Certain châteaux are produced exclusively from this grape, but most incorporate smaller quantities of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc as well. Despite its hefty (if not exclusive) proportion of Merlot, many people think of wines from this region as separate entities. As one wine aficionado stated recently, "It's not Merlot. It's Pomerol." Despite the region's small size, Pomerol contains some of the world's most sought after (and expensive) wines including Pétrus, Le Pin, Lafleur, l'Evangile and Vieux Château Certan. Unlike other Bordelais subregions, there is no system of classification. The châteaux are traded on reputation alone.
