Wine Spectator, March 2003
This has everything. Super class and elegance yet ripe and exciting. Fantastic aromas of blackberries cherries violets and minerals. Full-bodied with incredible raspberry cherry mineral and silky tannins. Very long... This has everything. Super class and elegance yet ripe and exciting. Fantastic aromas of blackberries cherries violets and minerals. Full-bodied with incredible raspberry cherry mineral and silky tannins. Very long. Winemaker Denis Durantou is a purist and it shows. Best after 2012. –JS

The 2000 l’Eglise-Clinet was picked from 18 September and matured in 80% new oak. This has a magnificent bouquet with black fruit infused with bay leaf, smoke, freshly rolled tobacco and a touch of spice. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, quite firm in the mouth with blackberry, clove, allspice and white pepper. This has always been a very complex millennial Pomerol with a very grippy, quite masculine finish and therefore decanting is advised. Denis Durantou informed that this was the only vintage neither fined nor filtered. -- Neal Martin

The saturated ruby/purple color offers up pure fruit notes of mulberries figs and cassis intermixed with hints of licorice and toasty oak. Revealing great palate presence tremendous texture sweet tannin relatively low acidity and a finish that exceeds 60 seconds I assume this wine will close down not to reopen for nearly a decade. This is a profound example from a proprietor who has never subscribed to the new progressive/razzle-dazzle techniques being employed by some of the cutting edge producers. Here it is low yields ripe fruit and non-interventionalistic winemaking at its purest. Truly spectacular this could be another of the great classics proprietor Durantou has produced over recent years. For now it is hard to believe it could rival or eclipse the fabulous 1998 or for that matter the 1995 but the 2000 has gone from strength to strength in its evolution. From bottle it is dazzling. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2035+.
