TASTING NOTES

An elegant second wine of L’Eglise Clinet with dark berries, spices and stones. Medium body and silky and polished tannins.

James Suckling, jamessuckling.com (April 2018)
(90—91)/100

The 2017 La Petite Eglise was picked from 12 to 22 September at 41hl/ha and is matured in 50% new oak. Just one small parcel near the Barbanne tributary was touched by frost but nothing on the plateau. It has a straightforward bouquet with more red fruit than black, hints of freshly tilled soil and pencil shavings. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, a touch more compact than previous vintages but beautifully focused and silky smooth towards the sustained finish. Excellent.
