My Notes:

About Chateau Clos L'Eglise:

This is the land that gives personality to a vintage and it was the work of Sylviane Garcin-Cathiards, she brings the wine to their full potential. After taking over the property in January 1997, with her experience at Château Haut-Bergey in Pessac-Léognan, she redesigned the winery. The soil is clay and gravel with lifts dirt iron, which gives the wine a special character, that is often found in Pomerol. Located on the hillside, most of the vineyard extends southwest of buildings, breaking the famous Pomerol plateau. Its area is 6 hectares. It is composed of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Franc.
