Making its debut in 1986, La Petite Eglise is technically the second wine of Chateau l'Eglise de Clinet, which has become one of the finest estates in Pomerol since it was acquired by Denis Durantou in 1983. It is not regarded as a second-wine by the proprietor, however, since the terroir for La Petite Eglise is on sandy soils, rather than the more traditional deep, loamy classic Pomerol clay of the Grand Vin.

Wild flowers, cherry fruit and even a touch of cigar-box and cedar on the nose. Medium-bodied and accessible, with red berry fruit. The finish is refined and displays superb length for a second wine; crafted for early enjoyment.

Great with wholesome meaty dishes, shepherd's pie would be an excellent pairing.

Bottled exclusively in magnum in this vintage.
