L'Eglise-Clinet is one of the best-situated vineyards in Pomerol and proprietor/winemaker Denis Durantou is one of the most meticulous producers in Bordeaux. The vineyard is composed of tracts of very old vines (one planted in 1930). The wine which is made from extremely small yields of two tons per acre is normally a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc all of it aged in 60% new oak casks. The 1994 exhibits a saturated dark ruby/purple color as well as a tight but promising nose of ripe cherries mulberries and currants along with a vague notion of black truffles. Medium to full-bodied with pure fruit a layered impression and stubborn tannin in the muscular finish this wine is not as charming as the more forward 1993. A larger-scaled richer wine the 1994 requires 5-6 years of cellaring. An impressive 1994. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2022.
