CHÂTEAU L'EGLISE-CLINET 2005 (12) 99 WA


CHÂTEAU L'EGLISE-CLINET 2005 POMEROL. THE CHÂTEAU L'EGLISE-CLINET 2005 WAS SERVED FROM BOTTLE AND FROM MAGNUM (BOTH EX-CELLAR). IT HAS A MAGNIFICENT NOSE WITH BEWITCHING DELINEATION: DARKER FRUIT THAN EITHER THE 2003 OR 2004, BLACKBERRY, RASPBERRY, HINTS OF BLACK TEA AND BLACK TRUFFLE. THE PALATE IS MEDIUM-BODIED WITH BRILLIANT FOCUS, STILL QUITE BACKWARD AS SO MANY GRANDEES OF THIS VINTAGE REMAIN, ALBEIT BEGINNING TO SOFTEN TOWARDS THE LICORICE-TINGED FINISH. THIS IS A BENCHMARK FOR BOTH DENIS DURANTOU AND THIS POMEROL ESTATE, ALTHOUGH I CAN SEE IT TESTING WINE-LOVERS' PATIENCE. TASTED MARCH 2015. DRINK 2020-2050 99 WA 12 BTS. (OWC) PER LOT $5,000 - $7,000




Price Realised: $5940
