Another beautiful wine from the Garcin family, Clos l’Eglise, which had been a moribund estate for decades, leaped to the forefront in the late nineties where it has remained ever since. The dense ruby/purple-hued, medium-bodied 2011 possesses abundant notes of sweet black cherries, licorice and plums as well as impressive purity, texture and length. It should be at its peak in 2-3 years and last for 12-15. Usually, this is a blend of 80+% Merlot and the balance Cabernet Franc. Apr 2014, www.robertparker.com
This has drive, depth, purity and focus, with plum sauce, raspberry coulis and blackberry fruit melded nicely together and framed by suave toast. Shows a graphite edge that belies the general profile of the vintage. James Molesworth, WineSpectator.com
Tasted at the Cercle de Rive Droite (from new bottles that I requested.) The Clos l’Eglise has a sorbet-like freshness on the nose. It is probably unfair to compare it to the outstanding 2010, but it is certainly lighter and not as complex, yet very well delineated. The palate is medium-bodied with attractive, slightly chewy tannins and very well judged acidity, rendering this a harmonious Pomerol that does not have any intention of outdoing the 2010. It is a little broody on the finish but it should turn out to be a “solid” Pomerol. Tasted April 2012. Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com
Coffee, chocolate, plum, earth, flora, black cherryl and vanilla aromas were in full force. From a blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc, and reaching 14.2% alcohol, the wine ended with supple, fresh cocoa and black raspberry. TheWineCellarInsider.com
Dark and intense. Oak a touch intrusive but pure fruit behind. Firm, fresh and structured with a good long finish. Definite ageing potential. Drink 2018-2030. Decanter.com
