“L'Eglise-Clinet must be the sleeper chateau of the century! Unfortunately, the small production has ensured that few people have ever tasted this wine.”
–Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
As one of the smaller leading producers of the Pomerol appellation of Bordeaux, Château L'Église-Clinet has become extremely prestigious in more recent vintages thanks to praise from esteemed wine critics. The 11 acre estate produces only around 1500 cases of wine per year, with half of their vines being 50 years old. Since 1983, Winemaker Denis Durantou took over and has assisted L'Eglise-Clinet’s rise to prominence.
