L'Eglise Clinet 2015

L’Eglise Clinet 2015 has been released at €180 per bottle ex-negociant, up 36.4% on 2014 (€132). It is being offered by the international trade at £1,900 per 12×75, up 46.1% on the 2014’s release price of £1,300.

L’Eglise Clinet 2015 was received positively by the critics, scored 98-99 by James Suckling, 94-97 by James Molesworth and 96-98 by Neal Martin, who praised a “sophisticated and refined” bouquet, with “bunches of violets emerging with time.”

There is significant variation between the price of L’Eglise Clinet’s last ten vintages. The release of £1,900 pitches the 2015 towards the higher end, but still at a 24-27% discount to the 2009 (RP 99+) and 2010 (RP 96+). For those looking for a L’Eglise Clinet with several years in bottle, the 2006 may be intriguing – with 96 points from both Neal Martin and Robert Parker, it is available for £1,200 per 12×75.
