2020 Clos l'Eglise, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1539493 96-97 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A Pomerol with gorgeous crushed-berry, walnut, hazelnut and chocolate character, as well as a full body with ultra fine tannins that frame the wine beautifully. Extremely long finish. Three super wines in a row since 2018. Inner quote mark (5/2021)

95-97 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Based on 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc raised in 70% new French oak, the 2020 Château Clos L'Eglise is a beauty that’s going to match the magical 2009 and 2016. Dense purple-hued, with stunning notes of black cherries, cassis, graphite, licorice, and crushed stone, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, classic Pomerol elegance and purity, and a great finish. This is a magical, concentrated, blockbuster of a wine that somehow stays and delicate and ethereal as they come. Don't miss it! 95-97+ Inner quote mark (5/2021)

95-97 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2020 Clos L'Eglise is outrageously vivid and hauntingly beautiful. Inky red fruit, wild flowers, mint and rose petal come alive in the glass, all framed by powerful yet well-balanced tannins. Although the 2020 is a young, structured wine, its balance is absolutely impeccable. I can't wait to taste it from bottle. It is a super showing from Hélène Garcin and Patrice Lévêque. (AG) Inner quote mark (6/2021)

93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Very deep purple-black colored, the 2020 Clos l'Eglise leaps from the glass with vivacious notes of crushed black cherries, redcurrant jelly and ripe, juicy blackberries, leading to an undercurrent of camphor, graphite and cedar chest, plus a touch of crushed rocks. The medium to full-bodied palate is bursting with ripe black fruits, supported by rounded, approachable tannins and seamless freshness, finishing on a persistent mineral note. (LPB) Inner quote mark (5/2021)

94 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Inky ruby colour, a muscular big-styled Pomerol which will win plenty of friends. Velvety tannins, great persistency, confident, contemporary and deftly walks the line between concentrated and nuanced. (JA) Inner quote mark (4/2021)

K&L Notes

93-95 points Neal Martin in Vinous: "The 2020 Clos l’Eglise is backward and initially reticent on the nose, gaining its voice with aeration, the mixture of red and black fruit augmented by black truffle and incense aromas and later a hint of ground chalk. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannins and fine acidity, quite lithe and harmonious, revealing hints of truffle and almost ash-like notes toward the firm finish. It does not quite display the panache of its Saint-Émilion stablemate Barde-Haut, although it does have impressive grip and backbone, suggesting that it will require 5–7 years in the cellar." (5/2021)
