CHATEAU L'EGLISE CLINET

Even though the name has changed over the years, since its split in the 1800s from a larger estate, the vineyards used for production of L'Eglise Clinet have been constant for 100 years.

Denis Durantou has been the owner and winemaker since 1983. His family had owned the estate since 1914 but, being predominantly farmers, had others manage the estate. Durantou did a huge amount of work to bring L'Eglise Clinet up to standard, renovating the dirt floor cellars, adding new vats, stainless steel, and increasing the amount of new French oak. The quality skyrocketed, and today it is one of the stars of Pomerol – rich and full bodied with beautiful harmony and balance.

The vineyard has a century-old drainage network that removes excess water and the soil is deep clay and gravel. Plantings are 85% Merlot, 14% very old vine Cabernet Franc and 1% Malbec. In fact, 25% of the total vines are over 75 years old and 25% over 50 years old, giving L'Eglise Clinet the largest collection of old vines in all Pomerol. This is one of the finest wines of Bordeaux' Right Bank.
