Exceptional class Pomerol wine with noted floral, blackberry, and earthy aromas coming through from the addition of Cabernet Franc. Rich flavours of dark plums, cedar, with a sweet minerality. Impressive structure, concentration, bright and with serious tannins. A truly fine wine which shows the world class skill of the Château and Pomerol, but without having to re-mortgage!
The 2018 vintage is the first time Cabernet Franc has been used in the wine, leading a beautiful aromatics and more perfumed profile to the wine.
The wine is made by Château L'Eglise Clinet as their '2nd wine' and is made by renowned winemaker Denis Durantou. It is regarded as one of the best value and quality second wines in the Pomerol region - the 2018 is extremely highly rated and is among the finest examples from that year.
