L’Eglise-Clinet 2021

L'Eglise-Clinet

Case Format: 6x75cl

Max score: 98.0

At just five hectares in size, Château L’Église Clinet should not be overlooked. Creating some of the finest offerings of the appellation, the estate has commanded some of the highest scores throughout the region, with vintages that have even rivalled the powerhouses of Petrus and Lafleur. This is a serious wine that is dripping in opulence and aromatics. Its deep complexity ensures that it needs over a decade of bottle ageing before reaching its full, unrivalled potential. The five-hectare vineyard comprises Merlot (c.85%), Cabernet Franc (c.14%) and Malbec (c.1%), however the Malbec is seldom added to the final blend. The terroir is deep clay and gravel soils, where the vineyard’s natural slopes allow for optimal drainage. The vines average an impressive 40 years of age and continue to thrive on L’Église Clinet’s exceptional terroir.

Jeb Dunnuck

The Grand Vin 2021 Château LEglise Clinet checks in as 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc thats resting in 75% new French oak and hit 14% alcohol. Its another medium-bodied, fresh, elegant, incredibly classic wine from this great estate that has pure dark, almost blue fruits, loads of floral and leafy herb nuances, integrated acidity, and beautiful tannins. I love its purity, and while it shines for its elegance and purity, it has good density.

85% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc. Cask sample. Busy and complex with dark fruit, camphor and spice notes. Juicy fruit and a real concentration of velvety tannin. Honed and long with plenty of freshness. Well constructed from beginning to end. (JL)
