Description

This renowned Pomerol estate has come on very strong in the last 10 years, thanks to owner Helene Garcin and consulting wine maker Dr. Alain Raynaud. The 2006 Clos l'Eglise La Reserve is a collaboration between Gary Vaynerchuk, along with Garcin, Patrice Leveque and Dr. Alain Raynaud. This wine emphasizes terroir and elegance more than power and brute force. Beautifully balanced, aromatic and a pleasure to drink now, this should easily last for 20+ years. 80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc."

ESTATE:
"Belonging to the aristocracy of the Pomerol is not the result of a decision but a heritage of quality and tradition, as in case of Clos L’Eglise. Just over three quarters of a century ago, in 1925, Savinien Giraud, the owner of Ch Trotenoy and President of the viticultural and agricultural Union of Pomerol, submitted to the Bordeaux Chamber of Commerce a “Classification” of the greatest wines of Pomerol, with Clos L’Eglise listed among the leading runners. This is why it is possible to date the reputation of Clos L’Eglise and the rank assigned to it by its peers, the members of the Union." -Winery

VITICULTURE:
"The soil is composed of clay and gravel, with iron deposits, which gives Pomerol its distinctive character. Situated on the slope of a hill, most of the vineyard stretches to the south-west of the building, at the break of the famous Pomerol plateau. It covers an area of 6 hectares. The vineyard is composed of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Franc (or Bouchet)." -Winery

VINIFICATION:
"The wine is made according to traditional methods. It is for this reason that Sylviane Garcin-Cathiard chose wooden vats for Clos L’Eglise. Each batch is treated separately in a thermostat-regulated vat of 60 hl. Manual pigeage has been re-introduced; the pulp and mass of skins, known as chapeau, floats to the top during fermentation and is punched down manually several times a day. The wine is left in fermenting vats for a long time, and malolactic fermentation is carried out in 100% new barrels. Ageing lasts between 16 to 18 months depending on the vintage." -Winemaker
