89 points "One of the least expensive wines produced by Gerard Perse, the 2005 Clos l’Eglise (70% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc) exhibits notes of sweet cranberries, jammy black cherries and strawberries, crushed rocks, and flowers. With a dense purple color, medium body, loads of fruit, and a soft, round mouthfeel and finish, it can be enjoyed over the next 5-6 years." Best 2009-2013

89 points "This estate has been producing fabulous wines since 1997, with the finest four vintages to date including the 2000, 2001, 1999, and 1998. The 2003 is not up to the quality of those wines but one can’t say enough about the Garcin family, who, since their acquisition of this estate in 1997, has done an exemplary job in turning out high quality Pomerols. From a difficult vintage for Pomerol, the 2003 Clos l’Eglise is an undeniable success. Although tougher-textured and more austere than the estate’s top vintages, it possesses good elegance as well as a sweet perfume of mocha, hazelnuts, black cherries, plums, and a hint of figs. Medium-bodied and elegant, with dry and austere tannins in the finish, it is best consumed over the next 7-10 years." Best 2006-2016
