Clos L'Eglise Pomerol | Red | 2001 | Bordeaux | Right Bank - Vivino Rating 4.5
Intro: In the 18th century, Clos L’Eglise with its 14 ha was a very large estate for Pomerol, ahead of a dozen Crus which formed and still form “the heart of Pomerol”. The history of Clos L’Eglise is linked to that of the vineyards “à Clinet”, a name that designates both place and ownership.
The vineyard map by the engineer Belleyme indicated in 1764 that the strongest vineyard holding starts from la Conseillante and by Petit-Village widens to Trop Ennuie (Trotanoy) and Clinet.

Tasting Notes: Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 95 Points: “The 2001 offers a huge spectrum of aromas, including notes of smoke, mocha, chocolate, coffee, and loads of blackberry, cherry, and currant fruit. The superb aromatics are followed by an elegant, medium-bodied, deliciously supple-textured, expansive, fleshy, beautifully pure, well-delineated Pomerol. It is a brilliant effort as well as one of the candidates for the wine of the appellation in 2001. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2014.” (RP) Jun 2004
