Description

93  Decanter
“25% frosted but no second generation fruit used. The grapes here are planted on the deep gravels of the Pomerol plateau, and it has definitely come out of the difficult early season strongly. It’s extremely powerful, and very complex in its dark fruit and menthol layering, with a tight tannic structure and an austere character – this is not a vintage for hedonists like 2015 was but is a serious wine with good ageing ability.” (4/2018) Jane Anson

93 Neal Martin for Vinous
The 2017 Clos l’Eglise has a richer bouquet than the Barde-Haute (also owned by Garçin-Léveque) with brine-tinged blackberry and bilberry fruit. There is a lovely marine influence here. The palate is medium-bodied with gentle grip, fine weight in the mouth, fresh and saline with a touch of bitter cherry on the finish. Classic in style, this is quite a cerebral Pomerol for the vintage and I suspect it will age with style. Excellent. (2/2020)

92 Jeb Dunnuck
“Blackcurrants, mocha, ground herbs, and hints of earth all emerge from the 2017 Clos L’Eglise, and it’s a medium to full-bodied, balanced, pure, layered Pomerol that does everything right in 2017. With ripe tannins, nicely integrated acidity, and beautiful balance, it’s a classic, elegant effort to drink over the coming 10-15 years.” (2/2020)
