The 2004 Château L'Eglise-Clinet needed 30-40 minutes to open in the glass before offering blackberry, briary, leather and black truffle scents that are very harmonious and actually build momentum in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, a little powdery in texture with black pepper and clove infused on what feels like a structured, masculine finish that is so typical of this vintage. However, it is well balanced and quite long in the mouth, certainly a commendable wine of the vintage, a L'Eglise-Clinet that should age well for another 10-15 years. This is a classic Pomerol and a classic L'Eglise-Clinet from Denis Durantou. Tasted February 2016. - Neal Martin

Wine Spectator, March 2007
Violet, blackberry, vanilla and fresh leather follow through to a full-bodied palate, with velvety tannins and a long finish. Balanced and very pretty. A lovely wine. Best after 2010. 1,500 cases made. –JS

Stephen Tanzer's IWC, May 2007
Moderately saturated red-ruby. Aromas of dark cherry, plum, coffee, spices and underbrush. Supple, sweet and easygoing, with a deep spiciness and good definition to its slightly medicinal black fruit flavors. Can't match... Moderately saturated red-ruby. Aromas of dark cherry, plum, coffee, spices and underbrush. Supple, sweet and easygoing, with a deep spiciness and good definition to its slightly medicinal black fruit flavors. Can't match the 2005 for sweetness or complexity but this has subtle depth and plenty of underlying structure. "I pray for a cold summer every year for merlot, especially August," notes Denis Durantou, who likes to make Pomerol with a reasonably low pH (the '06 is currently 3.7 and the '05 3.68). "As they say, August makes the must. Twenty years ago we hoped for a hot August, but now we want cool weather to slow down the ripening process."
