Round opulent and unctuously textured with a full-bodied mouthfeel fabulous purity and no hard edges this sumptuous fleshy lavishly rich Pomerol can be drunk now and over the next 25 years. Starting with the resurrection of this property in 1998 I have long been a huge fan of Helene Garcin's older vintages of Clos l'Eglise so I am hard-pressed to say that the 2009 Clos l'Eglise (virtually all Merlot with some Cabernet Franc) could be any better than her brilliant efforts in such vintages as 2000 2001 and 2005.

Still youthful ruby/plum-hued with a spectacular bouquet of chocolatey black cherry and currant fruits, graphite, leafy herbs, unsmoked tobacco, and a kiss of earth, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness as well as an incredible sense of opulence with no weight or heaviness. The usual blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, it has ripe, polished tannins, stunning purity of fruit, a great mid-palate, and is just a magical, heavenly Pomerol to enjoy over the coming 15-20 years.

This is a layered and very muscular red with a powerful tannin structure and gorgeous ripe yet fresh fruit. Full-bodied, layered and very exciting. Needs four or five years to come around still.

Full-bodied, concentrated and lush, there is a serious depth of flavor and layers of ripe, sweet, dark berries dipped in chocolate in the finish. I'd lay this down another 3-5 more years for more oak integration and additional nuances.

It has a ravishing bouquet with opulent dark cherry, cassis and blueberry fruit interlaced with a touch of vanilla. It is modern in style for sure, but exuding finesse and class. The palate is full-bodied with succulent tannins. The 2009 is more voluptuous than the 2005 with very sweet candied fruit and a rounded, velvety smooth finish.

Nice grip strides in on the finish with a graphite spine adding serious length and definition. This has plenty of steak to match its sizzle. Best from 2015 through 2030. Tasted twice with consistent notes. 1000 cases made. -JM

Ripe and fruity, this has ripe tannin and rich red-berry flavors. It has a solid, firm background of dark tannins that promise good aging.
