Château Eglise Clinet, Pomerol 1994

Chateau Eglise Clinet, Pomerol 1994
Chocolate, figgy nose.  But classy.  Charm with restraint.  Medium body.  Quite firm.  Not hard though. We like wines like this — nothing blockbuster about them but the sum is a balanced, elegant and measured claret.  I got a lot more out of this than my guests; they go straight for the more exotic and fleshy vintages of Eglise Clinet.  À chacun son goût!  When to drink your ’94s depends on which side of the fence you sit.  Personally, I am going to keep at two more of these in the cellar to enjoy over the next five years.  Those of you who want their Pomerol to be a little more Marilyn Monroe will prolly think this one is past its prime and needs drinking up pronto.
