1996 L'Eglise Clinet
In Stock: 7
 
LIGHTLY WRINKLED LABELS - RP 93 to 95 - This wine has fleshed out considerably. While it was tasting exceptionally fine in March, 1997, it now appears to be one of the superstars of the Right Bank. Readers can thank proprietor Denis Durantou for the extraordinarily strict selection that produced such an intense Pomerol. The opaque black/purple color is followed by a wine with copious quantities of sweet blackberry and raspberry liqueur-like fruit that soars from the glass. Full-bodied, with extraordinary fruit extraction, this is a large-scaled, broad-shouldered Pomerol with enough tannin to ensure 25-30 years of longevity. At present, the fruit dominates the wine, but there is considerable intensity to this 1996, which reveals layers of black fruits, in addition to a subtle dosage of smoky oak and black truffles.
