Very dense and concentrated, this is a dark wine. Bold plum flavors are richly balanced by solid tannins. It is already balanced, firm and packed with a ripe character that is going to make it delicious and opulent. Apr 2017, Roger Voss,
Very pretty wine with blackberry, blueberry and dark-chocolate character. Medium-to full-bodied, firm and silky. Impressive. Apr 17,
The 2016 Clos de la Vieille Eglise, the tiny property estate of Jean-Louis and Benoît Trocard, has an opulent bouquet with layers of ripe cassis and blueberry fruit, just showing a little more alcohol than its Pomerol peers. The palate is ripe and generous on the entry. I was expecting it to spill over into something overdone... but no. It is actually very elegant and harmonious with great depth and very fine persistence. Once the aromatics calm down, this could become a very impressive Clos de la Vieille Eglise, one certainly equal to the excellent 2015. Apr 2017,, Drink: 2020-2035
The 2016 Clos de la Vieille Eglise is pliant, racy and voluptuous, with terrific fruit intensity and plenty of near to medium term appeal. Juicy dark cherry, plum, chocolate, new oak and sweet spice notes abound. This is an especially racy, immediate style. Apr 2017,
Sweet and a bit simple. Not really trying hard enough.  Apr 2017,, Drink: 2019-2026
