36 75cl LES CRUZELLES
Lalande de Pomerol

RP/Neal Martin -
The 2015 Les Cruzelles is a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc on gravel/clayey soil, picked from September 15-22 and October 6 respectively, then matured in 45% new oak. The new wood is seamlessly integrated into this Lalande-de-Pomerol, more broody and introspective than the La Chenade at the moment, but very well defined. The palate is beautifully proportioned with crisp tannin, a fine line of acidity, somehow gentle and understated on the finish, but very long in the mouth. Yet another ridiculously fine wine to load up on, courtesy of Denis Durantou.
2015 £27.00 RP/NM93

36 75cl LES CRUZELLES
Lalande de Pomerol

RP -
F
rom the famous proprietor Denis Durantou, this blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc from a vineyard just adjacent to its more famous neighbour Pomerol, is a terrific 2012, one of the best Les Cruzelles I’ve tasted, right up there with some of the impressive Lalande de Pomerols of 2009 and 2010. This wine is supple-textured, opulent and full-bodied, with a dense ruby/purple colour, loads of mocha, black cherry and currant fruit. Long, full-bodied, rich, it is best drunk over the next 10-12 years.
2012 £27.00 RP90
2015-27
5 75cl BON PASTEUR
Pomerol

RP -
The flagship estate of Dany and Michel Rolland, this blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc possesses a dark ruby/purple colour as well as abundant aromas of sweet kirsch, cassis, liquorice and plums.
Full-bodied and impressively endowed, it is another successful wine in a tough vintage.
It should hit its peak in 3-4 years and last 15 or more thereafter.
2011 £45.00 RP90

30 75cl FEYTIT-CLINET
Pomerol

RP -
Dominated by Merlot (95%) blended with a small amount of Cabernet Franc (5%), with 14.5% natural alcohol, it exhibits an opaque blue/purple colour as well as a bouquet reminiscent of blueberry pie intermixed with espresso beans, black raspberries, charcoal and graphite. Full-bodied, thick and juicy with undeniable purity, a layered mouthfeel and abundant but sweet tannins, this exceptional Pomerol should be ready for prime time drinking in 5-8 years and last for at least three decades. Unfortunately, there are just over 1,300 cases produced.
This estate has been coming on strong over the last decade and the 2009 is their finest effort to date.

24 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 £44.00 RP/NM92

72 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 £30.00 RP/NM91
2018-28
24 75cl ROUGET
Pomerol
 
RP - This property has been on the qualitative high road for a number of years, and the 2012 continues that path. Deep ruby/purple, with wonderfully sweet, earthy, black cherry and blackcurrant fruit jumping from the glass, it is broad, opulent, beautifully textured and juicy. This is a sexy, lush, heady Pomerol to drink now and over the next 15 or more years. Full, long and impressive.
2012 £42.00 RP92
