2014 Pomerol

Grapes Merlot, Cab Franc
Colour Red
Origin France, Bordeaux
Sub-district Pomerol & Lalande de Pomerol
Village Pomerol

Well-formed primary cherry fruit with an attractive confectionary style. Complete and harmonious on the palate with chalky tannin and rich, concentrated fruit that speaks with boldness and conviction. Very much a modern, young style that deserves long cellaring – but has the charm to win many people over now. Drinking range: 2020 - 2040 Rating: 17+ Richard Hemming MW - (Apr 2018)

Rose petal, sweet red cherry, plum, mint and new leather notes abound in the 2014 Clos L'Eglise. Polished, lifted and very sexy, the 2014 is decidedly gracious, finessed Pomerol. It has shut down a bit in bottle, but it is very pretty. The blend is 80 % Merlot and 20 % Cabernet Franc. Drinking range: 2020 - 2034 Rating: 94+ Antonio Galloni, 2017)

Modern polished nose. Medium bodied with juicy fruit. Well-handled extraction. Builds on the palate and finishes with persistence and length. (Highly Recommended Pomerol, Decanter.) Drinking range: 2020 - 2030 Rating: 90+ James Lawther MW, 2015)

The Clos l’Eglise 2014 was picked on 23 September until the 27 September with the last parcel of Cabernet Franc, matured in 100% new oak in 300- and 500-liter barrels. It has a well-defined, expressive bouquet already with subtle wet clay scents infusing the black cherry and blackcurrant fruit, a touch of violet developing with time. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, perhaps a little pinched compared to their Barde-Haut ’14 with sappy black fruit on the finish. This is broody and introspective compared to recent vintages, although there is impressive length here and it may merit a higher score after bottling. As I said, at the moment, I would bet on Hélène Garçin-Léveque's Barde-Haut in Saint Emilion being the one to seek out. Drinking range: 2019 - 2032 Rating: 90-92 Neal Martin, 2015)
