Pomerol Chateau du Domaine de L’Eglise
It is in 1589 that the name is mentioned for the first time in the „Vieux Papiers du Libournais“, which makes Domaine de l’Eglise the oldest estate on Pomerols famous plateau. Originally property of the church, it was a hospice for people with a disease that were thus kept out of the city of Libourne. The estate was secularised in the 18th century. Domaine de l’Eglise, as the name is indicating, lies next to Pomerols church, close to Château Petrus. The round, smooth and fruity Domaine de l’Eglise has been among the most popular ones from Pomerol for many years
A top notch effort from this Pomerol estate. Wine Spectator 91/100. Displays a dark ruby colour, big sweet aromas of melted liquorice, plenty of chocolate, mocha and plums. Deep and pure opulence, a beautiful wine.
