2007 l'Eglise Clinet, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)
91-94 points Robert Parker. 90-93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(an 85/15 blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc) Bright medium ruby. Lively aromas of black raspberry, coffee, licorice and bitter chocolate. Sweet, sappy and rich; this is stuffed with black fruit, licorice and bitter chocolate flavors, nicely framed and lifted by racy acidity (the pH here is a healthy-for-the-vintage 3.7) and a floral element. Firmly built, spicy and long on the aftertaste. A superb showing." (May/June '08) 90 points Wine Spectator Insider: "Shows gorgeous aromas of ripe blackberry, tobacco box and flowers. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a milk chocolate, toasty oak and berry aftertaste. So attractive now. Wonderfully crafted for the vintage. Best after 2012" K&L's notes: "*+ Blackish color. Sweet and lively. Fine structure and excellent harmony here. Not pushed - pure! Supplies are extremely limited. Do not delay! Please note - 2007 Bordeaux futures are not in stock, but will arrive between Jan 2010 and Dec 2010. We will contact you for shipping instructions.
