Difficult following the 2005, although it makes a sterling effort. The nose is much more introverted at the moment, but it gradually unfurls to reveal ripe blackberry, black plum, a touch of black olive and cassis. Excellent definition and purity as usual. The palate is very ripe, almost viscous on the entry with ripe blackberry, cassis, plum and blueberry. Lovely texture, silky smooth tannins, a surprisingly amount of glycerine towards the finish. The is a superb Pomerol with amazing persistency and grip, just lacquering the mouth with pleasure. Sublime. Drink 2015-2040.

Tasted at Bordeaux Index's annual 10-Year On tasting in London. The 2006 Château L'Eglise-Clinet has a killer bouquet: intense black and red fruit, crushed rose petals, a touch of potters wheel and dried herbs. It possesses one of the classiest aromatics in the Pomerol appellation. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, dense dark berry fruit laced with black tea, dried herbs and a touch of juniper, gently building towards a lightly spiced, dense finish with impressive substance. This is a long-term Pomerol that needs another 3-4 years in bottle. Tasted January 2016. - Neal Martin

Lush and sweet but with superb freshness and underlying structure. The wine's combination of suavity backbone and compelling mineral-driven perfume is why I often find it hard to take merlot seriously when it's not grown on the Pomerol plateau. Finishes silky and very long. This has turned out splendidly. 94 points

Wine Spectator, March 2009
Violet black licorice and berry aromas follow through to a full body with chewy tannins and a powerful finish. Layered and rich or the vintage. Needs time to develop. Best after 2014. 1350 cases made. -JS
