Ch. l’Eglise Clinet (0.75 L)
NM: Tasted single blind at FINE magazineí»s vertical in Dusseldorf. A limpid dark garnet core. The nose is just wonderful, wonderful purity and mineralite: black cherries, cassis, a touch of blueberry intertwined with violets picked from Margaux. The palate is full-bodied and fresh, ripe dark berried fruit, grainy tannins perhaps slightly accentuated by being served cool. Very pure fruit, elegant and harmonious towards the finish with sharp tannins. I feel a little alcohol at the back of the throat, a little heat that suggests that this might be the 2003? Tasted February 2011.
