Tasting Notes and Scores
A strong effort for the vintage, the 2008 Clos l’Eglise offers notes of espresso roast, Asian plum sauce, black currants and a hint of oak in a fleshy, medium to full-bodied style with outstanding purity, texture and length. It can be drunk now and over the next 10-12 years. Kudos to proprietress Helene Garcin and winemaking consultant Dr. Alain Raynaud.
En primeur barrel sample. This has a very deep, purple colour. The nose is closed at first, broody and surly with blackberry and plum, a hint of boysenberry. The palate is well structured with fine tannins and a Cabernet Sauvignon-like personality. Silky smooth, tightly wound finish threaded through with Clos L-Eglise's trademark purite. Excellent. Tasted March 2009.
