94    Antonio Galloni for Vinous
“The 2012 Clos L’Eglise is wonderfully lifted in the glass, with plenty of Cabernet Franc aromatics woven throughout a core juicy, layered fruit. Rose petal, mint, cinnamon and sweet red berries grace the palate. Exquisite and beautifully nuanced throughout, the 2012 offers exceptional balance, with polished, silky tannins that round out the creamy finish. The 2012 is quite open today, but it could use another few years to soften further. The 2012 is 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. Proprietor Hélène Garcin and her husband Patrice Leveque continue to raise the bar here and at their other properties in the region.” (1/2016)

93    Jeb Dunnuck
“I also loved the 2012 Clos L’Eglise. This more medium-bodied, elegant Pomerol boasts a healthy purple color to go with ample chocolate-laced black cherry and currant fruits, medium-bodied richness and depth, plenty of tobacco and floral nuances, and a great finish. It doesn’t have the concentration of the top vintages here yet is beautifully balanced, elegant, and will continue drinking nicely for another 10-12 years.” (10/2020)

93    James Suckling
“A very balanced and pretty red with walnut, chocolate and dark-berry character. Green olives, too. Medium to full body and fine tannins. A delicious and pretty wine.” (4/2018)

92    James Molesworth for Wine Spectator
“On the chunkier side for now, with ganache and espresso notes lending a lightly firm frame to the crushed plum and blackberry fruit. There’s plenty of flesh here as well, and a roasted earth accent on the finish. Should knit together with cellaring.” (3/2015)
