Tasting Notes

This has a beguilingly crisp, well-defined nose: pellucid and lifted. Blackberry leaf, raspberry and a touch of clay. Very fine tannins, superb balance, lovely crispness and femininity it is superior to many a Grand Vins! Great tension on the finish, a great sense of minerality. Although this has just had one month in barrel, it will be ridiculously good for the vintage. Tasted April 2008.

Score: 90/92Neal Martin,, April 2008

Second wine of Église-Clinet. Dark crimson. Really toasty and lively and with lots of fruit on the nose. Really exciting. Real line right through the palate. Most impressive. No holes. No excess of acid or tannin. A little austere and short on the finish lets it down but otherwise it’s pretty impressive for this vintage. A twin of the Blason de l’Évangile. Drink 2012-2017

Score: 16.5Jancis Robinson MW,

A lovely violet fragrance on the nose under which is a mix of black fruits, bilberry and black cherry all intermingles with cassis. The tannins are in evidence but feel ripe allowing the lush fruit to fill the mid and end palate.

Score: 89/93Derek Smedley MW, April 2008

Expressive and forward in style. Sweet fruited with red berry aromas and smooth tannins. Jolly bottle for early drinking. Drink 2011-2017. 3 stars.
