2009 Esprit de l'Eglise, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)
Very open and inviting at first, this features steeped black currant, anise and smoldering tobacco flavors leading the way, followed by equally rich notes of fig paste and ganache on the finish. Turns dense and almost loamy through the finish, with lots in reserve. Merlot. Best from 2014 through 2030.
This is the second wine of Clos l'Eglise. Absolutely delicious wine. Forward and fruity. And it just received 93 points from the Wine Spectator.Note: Futures item. Wine will arrive late 2011 to 2013. You will be contacted for delivery instructions.
