Chateau du Domaine de l'Eglise 2010, Pomerol

 

The name is mentioned for the first time in the "Vieux Papiers du Libournais", in 1589, which makes Domaine de l'Eglise the oldest estate on Pomerol's famous plateau. Originally the property of the church, the estate was secularised in the 18th century. Domaine de l'Eglise lies next to Pomerol's church, not far from Château Petrus. In 1973 the château was acquired by the Castéja family. It owes its name equally to Couvent de l'Eglise, a remainder of the ancient alliance to the Temple Order. The round, fruity Domaine de l'Eglise wine has been among the most sought after in Pomerol for many years
