    Description

    Clos l'Eglise 1998
    Pomerol
    Bottle (9)


    "A classic Pomerol, the 1998 boasts a superb, complex bouquet of mocha fudge, vanilla, black cherries, roasted coffee, smoke, and berries. The dazzlingly explosive aromatic display is followed by a creamy-textured, medium to full-bodied, beautifully-layered wine with no hard edges. A supple texture leads to a finish with notes of caramel and spice that lingers for over 40 seconds. This is a gorgeous, complex Pomerol." (93 pts. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #134, Apr. 2001)

    "Fresh mushrooms turn to crushed blackberries on the nose. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and lots of new wood. The finish is full of vanilla and fruit." (89 pts. JS, WineSpectator.com, 2009)


    Estimate: $550 - $750.

    Shipping Restriction: Please note that we cannot ship to addresses in Massachusetts, so please bid accordingly.
