Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 29/06/2010
I bought this wine for myself because I thought it was a sleeper of the vintage, and I couldn’t be happier. My score in two tastings was identical to what it was seven years ago. Chocolatey espresso notes jump from the glass of this dark ruby/purple-colored wine. Full-bodied, with a silky texture, loads of concentration and density, this is a beautiful wine that is both hedonistically and intellectually pleasing. The wine seems to have reached full maturity, where it should stay for another 10-15 years.
-Parker's Wine Buyer's Guide No 7
A stunning achievement from this unheralded vineyard, the saturated ruby/purple-colored 2000 displays a striking perfume of cigar smoke, scorched earth, roasted espresso, and intense black cherry/currant fruit. It possesses luxurious richness, medium to full body, sweet tannin, and a seamless, silky-textured finish that lasts for nearly 45 seconds. This brilliant achievement satisfies both the hedonistic and intellectual senses. Moreover, it is a good value, and surprisingly accessible in spite of its density. A bottle kept open for 5 days never revealed any oxidation ... always a good barometer of a wine's aging potential. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2020. P.S. This achievement owes much to the Cathiard-Garcin family who has done so much to resurrect the once moribund Pomerol estate of Clos l'Eglise. (94)
