Chateau du Domaine de l'Eglise 2011, Pomerol

 

Producer Note

Domaine de l'Eglise is the oldest estate on Pomerol's famous plateau, first mentioned in the Vieux Papiers du Libournaisin 1589. Originally the property of the church, the estate was secularised in the 18th century. Domaine de l'Eglise lies next to Pomerol's church a stones throw away from Château Petrus. In 1973 the château was acquired by the Castéja family. The round, fruity Domaine de l'Eglise wine has been among the most sought after in Pomerol for many years.

Vineyard

The vines are trained according to the Double and Single Guyot training method and are grown in gravel over sandy-clay soils.

Winemaking

Fermentation took place in thermo regulated vats, followed by maturation in French oak barriques for a period of 16 to 18 months. 60% of the barriques were new.

Tasting Note

Intense aromas of coffee, plum and raspberry. Vibrant on the palate with an excellent structure, concentrated sweet fruit and good freshness. The texture is plush with rounded tannins and an elegant finish.

Serving Suggestion

At room temperature with grilled or roasted red meats and cheese.

Grape

Merlot 95%, Cabernet Franc 5%
