A sensational effort from proprietor Denis Durantou this 2005 is a compelling wine but purchasers should wait at least a decade to begin the magical liquid tour. One of the monumental wines of the vintage it boasts a dense purple color as well as a glorious perfume of caramelized blackberries blueberries and raspberries a hint of toast in the backward fully integrated oak full body and exceptional density and richness. Prodigiously concentrated this layered broad Pomerol reveals a seamless integration of acidity tannin alcohol and wood. It is a massive yet remarkably elegant wine that is as singular as it is exhilarating. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2040.

The bouquet races out of the blocks with red berry fruit, brown spices, black truffle and a whiff of smoke. Give it several minutes in the glass and it develops some gorgeous floral aromas, iris and violet, gaining precision with every swirl. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannin that frame layers of red fruit infused with tea leaf, bay leaf, a touch of white pepper and an almost ferrous finish that caresses gently. This has long been a deeply impressive l’Eglise-Clinet with a half-century lifespan. -- Neal Martin
