Poised on the right bank of Bordeaux near the church of Pomerol, Chateau du Domaine de L'Eglise is one of the appellation’s oldest wineries.
Chateau du Domaine de L'Eglise 2021 is a Pomerol wine that stems from a 7-hectare vineyard located in the center of the famous plateau of the appellation.
A particularly wet winter preceded a spring marked by a major frost on the 7th and 8th of April, which had an impact on the vines, whose budbreak had begun on April 2nd. Although May was hot and dry, which aided the flowering period, conditions in June were cool and rainy. The estate's teams increased their efforts to preserve the vineyard’s healthy condition. The weather in July and August was variable and cool. The dampness at the beginning of September gave way to a pleasant month of October, during which the sunshine and low rainfall helped to refine the ripening process. Harvested at optimal ripeness, the Merlot grapes boast a very high quality.
