Clos l'Eglise Pomerol 2000
Wine AdvocateSeven years ago I said this was a monumental wine, and at two different recent tastings, it was a true star of the vintage. Its stunning dark plum color offers up notes of caramelized red and black fruits, toffee, smoke, Asian plum sauce, sweet cherries, chocolate, and espresso. Its spectacular aromatics do not disappoint on the palate, as this multi-dimensional, highly complex, opulent wine seems to have hit a magical point in its evolution. Full-bodied, and concentrated, there is no issue with drinking this dazzling effort now, but those who own it can certainly cellar it for another 15 or more years. Bravo!
Wine SpectatorFascinating wine. Dark colored, with an intense aroma of violets and berries, with hints of minerals. Full-bodied, with well-integrated tannins and a succulent finish of exotic fruit. Best after 2010.
