2011 Clos l'Eglise, Pomerol

SKU #1160905 94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This is a tannic and tight 2011 with linear drive and focus. Violets and black olives, but crushed-stone and berry undertones, too. Medium to full body. Bright finish. Just coming around now. Inner quote mark (4/2018)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark 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. Drink through 2031. (RP) Inner quote mark (4/2014)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Good bright ruby. Knockout nose combines crushed raspberry, stone, iron, mint, violet and coffee. Very pure, precise and bright on the palate, with deep dark berry fruit flavors complicated by minerals, flowers and cocoa. The bright acidity extends the flavors nicely on the long finish. Cool and restrained Pomerol, with mounting tannins that call for patience. (ID) 92+ Inner quote mark (7/2014)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A fleshy, crowd-pleasing style, with Black Forest cake and roasted anise notes out front, followed by mouthfilling plum sauce, blackberry paste and fig flavors. Picks up a slightly chewy toast edge on the finish, but this will progress quickly thanks to the ripe fruit. Drink now through 2021. Inner quote mark (3/2014)

Big, rich, thick texture, dense and full, quite open in the mouth. Still some aggressive tannins and hints of herbal components.
