The purity of fruit is so alluring in this wine. Aromas of crushed berries, lemon rind and flowers follow through to a full body, firm and silky tannins and a long and flavorful finish. All in finesse and texture. So fine...

96+ One of the more backward wines in the vintage, the 2014 Château L’Eglise Clinet is nevertheless packed with potential. A blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc brought up in 70% new barrels, this deep ruby/purple...

The 2014 L'Eglise Clinet was tasted from a single bottle but from two glasses, each poured at different times before I arrived for the tasting. They were almost identical on the nose but the one poured later was more...

Vinous, March 2024

The 2014 L'Eglise-Clinet has a lovely nose that is superior to other Pomerols in this flight. It's fresher with more vigor and scents of wild strawberry, cranberry, licorice and cedar. It gains delineation in the glass...

Wine Spectator, January 2017

This has a big ball of raspberry confiture at the core, with dark licorice and warm fruitcake notes. Hedonistic only to a point, as a serious graphite beam runs throughout, giving this serious drive through the...

Decanter, April 2015

The 2014 L'Eglise Clinet from Bordeaux, France is a remarkable wine that showcases the true elegance and finesse of Pomerol. This red wine, made from a Bordeaux Blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, is a testament to the skill and craftsmanship of its producer, L'Eglise Clinet.

In the glass, the wine exhibits a deep ruby color, hinting at the concentration and richness that lies within. The nose is filled with enticing aromas of crushed berries, blackberry, myrtle, and a touch of iris. There is also a subtle hint of garrigue, reminiscent of the wild South African shrubland. This complex bouquet promises an extraordinary tasting experience.

On the palate, the 2014 L'Eglise Clinet does not disappoint. It is medium-bodied with crisp tannins and a silver bead of acidity, which contributes to its wonderful precision and beguiling purity. The flavors of raspberry confiture, dark licorice, and warm fruitcake take center stage, offering a hedonistic experience. However, this wine goes beyond mere indulgence, as a serious graphite beam runs throughout, providing a serious drive and structure that sets it apart from the rest.

The 2014 L'Eglise Clinet is a wine that demands attention. It is a wine that will evolve beautifully with age, so it is best enjoyed from 2020 through 2035. However, for those who cannot resist the temptation, it can already be appreciated for its finesse and inspiration. This wine is a true gem from Pomerol, showcasing the unique characteristics and essence of this renowned wine region in Bordeaux.
