The 2019 L’Eglise-Clinet has a very pure and almost Burgundian bouquet with wild strawberry, Morello cherries, touches of cassis and violet petals. This is one of the most sensual in the line-up. The palate is medium-bodied with pliant tannins, velvety in texture, quite tensile thanks to the acidity. Beguiling purity, plush black cherries, plum and white pepper with a long and spicy finish. Superb. Tasted blind at the Southwold annual tasting.
Anticipated maturity: 2026-2055
