45 75cl CLOS RENE
Pomerol

RP/Neal Martin -
A blend of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 10% Malbec, the 2015 Clos Rene has a perfumed raspberry preserve and crushed strawberry-scented bouquet. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grain tannin, a mixture of red and black fruit with a very refined, pastille-like, spicy finish. This is a lovely Pomerol to enjoy over the next 10-15 years, certainly one of the best offerings from the sandier soils on the western sector of the appellation.
2015 £32.00 RP/NM93

12 75cl CLOS L'EGLISE
Pomerol

Vinous.com/Neal Martin -
The 2010 Clos l’Eglise has a slightly reductive nose that soon blows off to reveal ample red and black fruit melted tar and black truffle scents. The palate is velvety smooth on the entry, displaying a fine bead of acidity and supremely well-integrated oak. This is a classy, seductive Pomerol that lingers long in the mouth.

44 75cl LE MANOIR DE GAY
Pomerol
 
This is the  2nd Wine from Chateau Le Gay

RP/Neal Martin
- The 2015 Manoir de Gay comes from 12-year-old Merlot vines from Le Gay. It has a fresh and vibrant, violet-scented bouquet that personally I find preferable to the 2015 Montviel. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red berry fruit, gentle grip in the mouth, just a touch of spice here, but good structured towards the finish - a hint of truffle on the aftertaste. This is a commendable deuxième vin.
2015 £24.00 RP/NM91

2 75cl LA PETITE-EGLISE
Pomerol
 
This is the  2nd Wine from Chateau L'Eglise-Clinet

RP/Neal Martin
- The 2016 La Petite Eglise is pure Merlot as usual that was picked on 5 October this year and matured in 50% new oak. It is a small production of just 700 cases. It has a pure and elegant bouquet with a hint of oyster shell infusing the red berry fruit.
The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, bright redcurrant and cranberry notes and fine acidity, tender and refined towards the finish
. This is another beautiful La Petite Eglise from Denis Durantou.

12 75cl LA PETITE-EGLISE
Pomerol
 
This is the  2nd Wine from Chateau L'Eglise-Clinet

RP/Neal Martin
- The 2015 La Petite Eglise is pure Merlot picked on 24 September at 41 hl/ha and matured in 45% new oak. It has a vivacious, precocious bouquet for a deuxième vin, kirsch and raspberry coulis, a touch of orange blossom. It is not an exotic bouquet, but it knows how to have fun. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red berry fruit, good depth in the mouth, perhaps just a little pinched on the finish at the moment, but it will have its fingers pried open by the end of its élevage. As such, give this a couple of years in bottle before broaching.
2015 £38.00 RP/NM92

37 75cl LA PETITE-EGLISE
Pomerol
 
This is the  2nd Wine from Chateau L'Eglise-Clinet

RP/Neal Martin
- The 2014 La Petite Eglise, pure Merlot picked on 3 October, is always a little gem and probably deserves more respect from cognoscenti. It has a gorgeously pure bouquet with ebullient red berry fruit, perhaps showing now more blue fruit, since I last tasted it. The palate is medium-bodied with supple ripe tannin, pure red cherry and strawberry coulis intermingled with cold stone and a touch of blood orange. There is wonderful precision on the finish. This is just superb and doubtless great value.
2014 £23.00 RP/NM91
2018-28
9 75cl TROTANOY
Pomerol
 
RP/Neal Martin - Tasted blind as a vintage comparison at the Valandraud vertical, the 2008 Trotanoy has an attractive bouquet with engaging clarity and purity: raspberry preserve, wild strawberry, a trace of something almost medicinal just below the surface. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin and a crisp line of acidity, subtle notes of cedar and tar infusing the red berry fruit with a composed, structured finish with plenty of freshness and vigour. Classic in style, well crafted and sure to give another two decades of pleasure, this is a stupendous Trotanoy that is up there with the 2009 and 2010 . Yes, it's that good and in fact, it kept on improving as it opened in the glass. Tasted December 2016.
2008 £165.00 NM96
