Tasting Notes

Denis Durantou was in fine humour for our visit and it took little time to see why. Dark purple in colour with a gorgeous nose of ripe fruit, violets and a dash of menthol. Massively concentrated, it literally swells in the mouth, and layers of dark fruit unfold over the palate. Long, lingering, concentrated finish, this goes on and on. Surely one of the wines of the vintage? There will not be enough to go round but fight to buy a case!   Drink 2020 - 2035

Reviews & Scores

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. Tasted November 2012.
