Another brilliant wine from Helene Garcin-Leveque, the 2010 Clos L’Eglise comes from a 15-acre vineyard near the well-known church just to the west of the high plateau of Pomerol. It is a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. Loads of roasted espresso notes intermixed with white chocolate, plum, Asian soy, blackberry and black cherry fruit make for an intensely perfumed set of aromatics. Plump, fleshy and full-bodied, with beautiful fruit as well as undeniable purity and an enticing texture, this is a succulent, lush Pomerol to drink over the next 12-15+ years.

Tasted three times including at Barde-Haut, this has a precocious, lifted peppermint-tinged bouquet with black cherries, briary, juniper and a touch of blueberry. Good definition. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins, good balance but quite introspective on the tannic, grippy finish. This is a more masculine Clos l’Eglise than recent vintages, one that will repay long-term cellaring. Tasted April 2011. Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com

The quality of the tannins in this young red is superb, with a texture of velvet. Full and yummy. jamessuckling.com

Dark and winey, with lots of cassis and blackberry notes and ample layers of velvety tannins and cocoa. A bit grippy on the finish, but plenty long. James Molesworth, winespectator.com

A note of green is apparent even on the nose. Drying tannins. Almost wood shavings. jancisrobinson.com

Undoubtedly a very good wine but at an awkward stage. Tight and firm with layered fruit but slightly intrusive oak. Winemaking has the upper hand. Drink 2018-2028. James Lawther, decanter.com

This full bodied, generous Clos l'Eglise that was crafted for long term aging. The gorgeous perfume of violets, plums, blackberries are seductive while on the palate, the flavours are lifted by the fresh acidity. There are layers of flavours along with dense, ripe tannins which suggest the wine will be even better after five or more years in bottle. Fairly long finish. asianpalate.com
