Description

The same plots of the Clinet Church contribute every year to the final assembly of La Petite Eglise. The vinification process favours the fruity characteristics of Merlot which are preserved by its shorter aging in barrels.

The 2014 La Petite Eglise, pure Merlot picked on 3 October, is always a little gem and probably deserves more respect from cognoscenti. It has a gorgeously pure bouquet with ebullient red berry fruit, perhaps showing now more blue fruit, since I last tasted it. The palate is medium-bodied with supple ripe tannin, pure red cherry and strawberry coulis intermingled with cold stone and a touch of blood orange. There is wonderful precision on the finish. This is just superb and doubtless great value. Drink date 2018-2028.
