There's some seriously good Merlot coming from the upper plateau of Pomerol in 2019, and the 2019 Château Clos L'Eglise is one of them. Deep purple-hued, with a rocking bouquet of black cherries, mulberries, chocolate, leafy herbs, and violets, this beauty hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, a heavenly, seamless texture, polished tannins, and a great mix of freshness and richness. Nothing is over the top, it's perfectly ripe, has a great mid-palate, and is a beautiful Pomerol in the making.
The 2019 Clos l'Eglise offers ripe black cherries, wild strawberry, hints of liquorice and marmalade on the nose, well-defined, quite extravagant but not excessive. It reflects the growing season. The palate is sweet and caressing in texture on the entry thanks to the saturated tannins. Good depth here, that liquorice note reappearing towards the finish that exerts a gentle grip, then delivers a long spicy aftertaste. Great potential, a Pomerol that should give 20-30 years of drinking pleasure. (NM)
Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2019 Clos l'Eglise slowly unfurls to reveal wonderfully fragrant scents of red roses, candied violets, Sichuan pepper, hoisin and garrigue over a core of blackberry preserves, stewed plum and spice cake with a waft of cast-iron pan. Medium-bodied, the palate is elegantly played with a well-knit backbone of ripe, grainy tannins and seamless freshness supporting the fragrant layers, finishing long and mineral laced. (LPB)
