The tannins are firm but flexible, allowing for some lightness. Hugely complex, but still hugely young. This vintage was made from the first year of the full maturity for these young vines – now 14 years old, 3.55pH. At this youthful stage you can feel the smoky, grilled brush of the oak, which is 70% new, with medium toast, and it’s double toasted to ensure there are no vanillin flavours. This wine will climb upwards and outwards towards the horizon, staking a claim for greatness in 2015.

With a depth of color that lets you know this is a seriously concentrated wine, when your nose meet the glass, you find roses, truffle, nuts, espresso, dark chocolate, cocoa, mint and ripe plums. The wine is dense and palate staining. The fruit gets into every nook and cranny your taste buds allow. With opulent textures, length and complexity, the wine moves from red to black fruits to chocolate, to licorice and back to the fruit again, as it lingers on your palate. Give this over a decade in the cellar and it could hit triple digits as it ages. Read more at:https://www.thewinecellarinsider.com/wine-tasting-note/?vintage=2015&wine=Chateau%20L%27Eglise-Clinet

The violets, roses and dark fruits are so evident but they entice you in a subtle and fresh way. Full-bodied, dense and tannic, yet everything is so in tune with everything else and there are no hard edges or loose ends... The violets, roses and dark fruits are so evident but they entice you in a subtle and fresh way. Full-bodied, dense and tannic, yet everything is so in tune with everything else and there are no hard edges or loose ends. It’s like a whirlpool that draws you down and then shows you its beauty. The harmony and complexity is phenomenal. Try in 2024 but I don’t want to wait.

Big, rich and full-bodied, the palate offers exquisite harmony, packed with exotic spice and red and black fruit layers, finishing on an epically long-lasting mineral note. In an understated word: WOW. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

The bouquet has closed up a little since I last tasted it with brambly red berry fruit, briary and light loamy aromas. It is certainly one of the more refined vintages from Denis Durantou in recent years. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, darker fruit than intimated by the nose, quite savory in style with graphite and tobacco towards the finish thanks to some very expressive Cabernet Franc. I suspect this is going to continue closing down as this Pomerol has a tendency to do. Tasted at the l’Eglise-Clinet vertical at the château in April 2018. -- Neal Martin

This delivers a fresh, enticing beam of raspberry, boysenberry and blackberry coulis flavors that stretch out admirably while light anise, singed apple wood and fruitcake notes check in. Picks up some sneaky grip and a pretty mineral twinge through the finish. Rather elegant overall considering how much is here. Best from 2020 through 2035. 1,510 cases made. — JM
