"Tasted at Bordeaux Index's annual 10-Year On tasting in London and then at the château, the 2006 Clos l'Eglise has an attractive, quite opulent bouquet with blueberry and crème de cassis aromas tinged with black truffle and violets. The palate is medium-bodied with supple ripe tannin, good acidity, grippy in the mouth and substantial weight on the finish. If it can evolve more finesse on the finish, this will be a very satisfying Pomerol, so afford it another 3-4 years in bottle. Tasted March 2016. " (WA)

"Full, bright ruby. Superripe aromas of coffee, mocha and fig. Lush, pliant and rich; this has a three-dimensional texture brought alive by floral lift and terrific energy. The exotic flavors of plum, dark raspberry and coffee boast terrific texture and depth. The wine's substantial sweet, plush tannins provide solid underlying spine." (VM)
