The Chateau l'Eglise-Clinet 1997, served from an ex-chateau magnum, is certainly more fruit-driven and backward than many bottles that I have tasted over the years. It does not have a complex bouquet, but it doles out attractive kirsch, wild strawberry and truffle notes like there is no tomorrow. The palate is medium-bodied with light tannin and it is here that the limitations of the vintage are felt. It feels light and for this mighty Pomerol, just a little ephemeral for me. It has an easy-drinking style that is pleasant, but it's really just warming up for the 1998. Tasted March 2015. Jul 2016, www.robertparker.com
