Tasted at the château, the 2007 Clos l’Eglise was a pleasant surprise with quite vigorous black cherry and bergamot scents, just a hint of black tea, certainly showing good intensity after ten years. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannin, fine backbone, a pinch of cracked black pepper on the entry with a solid, slightly austere but focused finish that is resolutely classic in style. I appreciate the “Pomerol-ness” of this Clos l’Eglise. Drink now and over the next 6-8 years. Tasted March 2017.
