ABOUT THE WINE
The estate of Clos L'Eglise is one of the older chateaux in Pomerol dating all the way back to the 18th century. The modern era of Clos L'Eglise begins in 1975, when the property and its wine making facilities were all redesigned and modernized by the Moreau family. The estate is planted to 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. The quality of the wines has seen constant improvement under the management of Helene Garcin, one to watch!

TASTING NOTES
A superb effort in an elsewhere underwhelming vintage, the 2008 offers notes of espresso roast, cooked plum, blackcurrant and a hint of oak; outstanding purity, texture and length. Layered and deeply aromatic.

FOOD PAIRING
This is great with roast meat, beef or pork. For vegetarians, ratatouille will also bring the best out of the wine.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
Something of a hidden gem, both as an estate, and in the context of the vintage.
