Big and juicy with loads of ripe fruit and big velvet tannins. Full round and gorgeous. Fantastic. Soft with sweeter fruit. Lovely texture. Always a beauty. '89/'90 Bordeaux non-blind horizontal. Drink now. -JS

The 1989 Château L'Eglise-Clinet continues to shine at 27 years of age and this was certainly a better example than several that I have tasted in the last two or three years. It has a very complex nose, this bottle one of the most backward that I have encountered: red berry fruit, black truffle, crushed violets and sage aromas, a hint of warm tar emerging with time. The palate is extremely well balanced, still quite youthful and structured—a Pomerol that you have to learn to love (although trust me, it is worth the effort). This example suggests that it still has many years ahead, such is its substance and length. This was always a brilliant wine from Denis Durantou, a Pomerol that wears its heart on its sleeve. Long may it shine. Tasted January 2016. - Neal Martin
