L'Eglise Clinet 1989

Chateau L'Eglise Clinet

28 years

Somewhat inconsistent in all of my tastings, this wine has far more evolved color than the 1990, showing considerable amber at the edge. The moderately intense nose of brown sugar, malt chocolate, cedar, mulberries, and cherries is followed by a medium-bodied wine that seems to be fully mature. Its texture is a bit gritty, with some tannins poking their head through, and the wine is not as sweet and opulent as its sibling, the 1990. Nevertheless, this is an excellent bottle. It just seems short of magic, missing the extra layers of flavor and length that merit its lofty reputation. Anticipated maturity: Now-2016. Last tasted, 5/02.
