Deep Ruby with aromas of berry fruits, pleasant spice and earthy notes. Clos L'Eglise has a wine-producing tradition spread over several centuries. A blend of 80% Merlot & 20% Cab Franc, 100% new oak, on the palate flavors of fruit & spice, Cherry & Strawberry, with notes of cinnamon & cedar, lively acidity with great mouthfeel. Fine tannins that open nicely, long finish ending with toasty cedar, tobacco and earthy spice, should continue to age well. A Must on your list!

On the nose, a touch of funk, cherries, red licorice, cola, strawberries, vanilla, light cinnamon, warm, rich, dark earth and wild red florals. The body is medium and the tannins dusty M-M+. The palate matches the nose with; grainy volcanic minerals, blueberries, suede leather, nice round acidity and a rich, floral fruit finish.

Estate had prior succession problems & split into 2 with original Clos L'Eglise (Rouchut family) on one side and Clos L'Eglise-Clinet (Mauléon family)on the other. Clos L'Eglise has a wine-producing tradition spread over several centuries. A blend of 80% Merlot & 20% Cab Franc, 100% new oak, wonderful warm aromas of fruit & spice. Cherry & Strawberry flavors, with notes of cinnamon & nice energetic mouthfeel. Firm tight tannins that are beginning to open but should continue to age well. Put on Must Try list

Sawdust. Weird right?? That was my first impression. Still closed a bit after opening 3 hours ago. Blueberries, coffee. Liking it

Very balanced but after further consideration it does leave a odd after taste.

Drank this too early but it was still excellent if a bit woody. Needs a few years in the cellar
