Clos l'Eglise 2008: the subtle complexity of a Pomerol

2008 was noted as a classic vintage in Bordeaux, so the Clos l'Eglise 2008 is not lacking in character, expressing all the authenticity and complexity of the great terroir of Pomerol. A Grand Vin from the estate of Sylviane Garcin-Cathiard, the Clos l'Eglise 2008 is a fine illustration of what Pomerol has to offer, with 35-year-old vines on average for Merlot, and among the oldest Cabernets Franc vines in the appellation (45 years).

Clos l'Eglise 2008 has a deep and dense red ruby color. The nose opens with the sweetness of small fruits like blueberry and has delicate notes of licorice and mocha. The palate reveals a beautiful aromatic intensity that is voluminous with perfectly integrated and silky tannins. The finish has a pleasant length. A beautiful vintage that represents the terroir of Pomerol and that promises good aging potential.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
A strong effort for the vintage, the 2008 Clos l'Eglise offers notes of espresso roast, Asian plum sauce, black currants and a hint of oak in a fleshy, medium to full-bodied style with outstanding purity, texture and length. It can be drunk now and over the next 10-12 years. Kudos to proprietress Helene Garcin and winemaking consultant Dr. Alain Raynaud.
