Founded in the 16th century, Domaine de l’Eglise is believed to be Pomerol’s oldest property, the vines bordering famous names towards the north of the appellation’s central plateau, including La Fleur-Pétrus and L’Eglise Clinet. Under Castéja family ownership, in recent years it has been receiving the tightly focused attention it deserves. This is a property which is clearly on an upward trajectory, the outstanding 2020 vintage being the first that we purchased En Primeur. A blend of 98% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc, from 60-70-year-old vines, this is very deep purple colour, having beautiful aromas of plum, cocoa and floral black fruits. The palate has richness, power and excellent density, texture being voluptuous, tannins ripe, fine and fresh. This is a succulent, well balanced, fluid Pomerol, with well-sustained length (for drinking 2028-2040+).
