2012 l'Eglise Clinet, Pomerol 6-Pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1413813 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A gorgeous wine from proprietor Denis Durantou, this blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc is an inky purple color, with gorgeous purity of black raspberries, blackcurrants and blackberry with a hint of truffle and spring flowers. Its is full-bodied, opulent and a tour de force in this vintage. Great presence on the palate, fabulous purity and a long finish make for a magnificent bottle of wine to drink over the next 20-some years. (RP) Inner quote mark (4/2015)

95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2012 l’Eglise-Clinet was picked 21 September to 4 October for the Merlot and on 6 October for the Cabernet Franc. This is one of my favorite recent vintages. It is so vivacious and well defined on the disarming nose with pretty red cherry and strawberry aromas, crushed stone, smoke and wilted rose petal. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, endowed with a sense of exuberance that the 2013 could only dream of. I admire the precision and tension interwoven through this l’Eglise-Clinet and the manner in which it fans out on the succulent finish. This is a Pomerol that just wants to go out and give pleasure. (NM) Inner quote mark (7/2019)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This delivers a gorgeously pure and racy core of raspberry, boysenberry and blackberry fruit, melded perfectly with singed black tea leaf, dried star anise and roasted apple wood notes. Velvety and alluring overall, but there's a bright minerality buried on the finish. Best from 2016 through 2027. (JM) Inner quote mark (5/2013)

93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark On the nose and palate this red suggests blackberries and plums with roasted-coffee-bean notes. Full body, chewy tannins, good acidity and a fruity finish. Very serious for the vintage. Drink in 2017. Inner quote mark (2/2015)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Tasted blind. This wine is a sophisticated lawyer somehow. Lots of layers and urbanity. Source of great reward. Mid weight but so much subtlety. Not simple sweetness but great profundity. 18.5+/20 Points. Inner quote mark (1/2016)
