Chateau du Domaine de l'Eglise Pomerol Bordeaux 2016

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
stone's 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.
Vintage
Generous flowering took place followed by a hot, dry early summer. August was slightly
cooler and damper, followed by good weather in September enabling the grapes to
reach full maturity. Generally, the harvest took place earlier than the previous year. 2015
has been cited as a great modern Bordeaux vintage of excellent quality.
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.
