Tasted at the property, the L'Eglise-Clinet 2010 was absolutely stunning from barrel and in bottle, Denis Durantou's tour de force does not disappoint. It is imbued with an effortless quality on the nose: briary, raspberry preserve, crushed stone and just a hint of cassis. It is a linear nose - not extravagant or powerful - but very expressive of its terroir. The palate is medium-bodied with unbelievable intensity (not concentration) on the entry, the flavours almost regimented in their precision: fresh strawberry, raspberry, a hint of graphite and a touch of orange peel. It is so fresh, so animated and energetic that you want to keep taking sip after sip. This is a monumental L'Eglise-Clinet - quite profound.
