Wine Spectator – 93-96/100
Grippy from the start, featuring bramble and tar notes, layered with steeped plum and blackberry cobbler flavors. A touch chewy, but displays ample energy, with nice spice details on the finish.
Vinous – Antonio Galloni – 92-95/100
The 2018 Clos L’Eglise is a powerful, brooding wine with a huge core of super-ripe, dense fruit and equally imposing tannins. In 2018, heat and mildew impacted yields and resulted in a big, rich wine. Dark cherry, graphite, plum, mineral, spice and licorice add to an impression of brooding power. It will be interesting to see what élevage does here. Today, Clos L’Eglise is a real powerhouse. The blend is 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc.
The Wine Advocate – Robert Parker – 94-96/100
The 2018 Clos l’Eglise is a final blend composed of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc; the Merlot was harvested September 19-20, and the Cabernet Franc was harvested on October 10. Deep garnet-purple colored, it explodes on the nose with bold, expressive plum preserves, blueberry compote, mincemeat pie and sandalwood with nuances of lilacs, woodsmoke, Indian spices and dusty soil. Full-bodied, rich, velvety and decadently fruited in the mouth, it offers layer upon layer of voluptuous fruit, finishing long and spicy.
