Tasting note: The 1992 L'Eglise-Clinet has a brick-colored rim, although the core seems healthy with commendable depth of color. The bouquet is very pleasant. It is fully mature and open, the fruit having ebbed away some years ago, yet there is crispness and focus in situ, scents of potpourri, iris, cranberry leaf and terracotta. The palate is fresh on the entry with fine tannin and structure. There is commendable depth and cohesion: notes of mulberry, black pepper and cedar with tobacco on the finish that feels more Saint Emilion than Pomerol. This 1992 surpasses my expectations and bottles of sound provenance might surprise you.
