With a dense ruby/purple color is followed by a pure nose of mulberries, cherry liqueur and spring flowers, but no hint of oak, this full-bodied, opulent, rich beauty exhibits impressive purity, texture, richness and length. Not as structured or tannic as Trotanoy, it moves more in the direction of the opulence and flashy, showy fruit of Hosanna and Petrus. It should drink well for 15-20 years. Wine Advocate.April, 2014

Tasted at the property, Denis Durantou cannot really do wrong these days. The l’Eglise-Clinet 2011 was cropped between 12th and 15th September and the Cabernet Franc on 24th September, a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc being aged in 80% new oak. The nose is very elegant bouquet once left to unfurl over 10 minutes. It offers dark cherry fruits with touches of cassis and minerals: all very refined and poised. The palate is very well balanced with great precision on the entry. The Merlot is very expressive this year. The tannins are supremely fine and the finish linear and strict, offering traces of briary and minerals. There is a lovely femininity and sense of drinkability about this harmonious l’Eglise-Clinet that should be a worthy follow-up to the heavenly 2010. Tasted April 2012. Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com

A balanced wine with lovely floral and berry character and hints of dark chocolate. Full body, with a creamy tannin structure and lovely length. Lively acidity. jamessuckling.com

This is a step ahead of the pack, with concentration but gentle texture to the plum, cassis and linzer torte flavors, which are inlaid with black tea and singed fennel seed notes. Long and graceful through the finish, with latent depth. James Molesworth, WineSpectator.com

Two samples: the first a touch oxidised and marked by oak. the second revealed the power, energy and density of this wine. A firm tannic frame underpins layers of rich, dark fruit. Possibly a 5-star wine down the line. Drink 2020-2040. Decanter.com

Elegant medium bodied Pomerol with nice flavours, lifted aromatics and lovely detail. The mid palate is lacking a bit of depth but there are subtle layers of flavour on the mid palate and the tannin texture is velvety. Moderate finish. AsianPalate.com

Clearly one of the wines of the vintage 2011 Eglise Clinet is top class. Rich and full bodied. It has a seamless character and a lovely savoury aspect. The tanins are very fine and abundant with chinks of light glinting through the dense ripe fruit. Bravo!
