    "Very deep purple-black colored, the 2020 Clos l'Eglise leaps from the glass with vivacious notes of crushed black cherries, redcurrant jelly and ripe, juicy blackberries, leading to an undercurrent of camphor, graphite and cedar chest, plus a touch of crushed rocks. The medium to full-bodied palate is bursting with ripe black fruits, supported by rounded, approachable tannins and seamless freshness, finishing on a persistent mineral note."

    "In 1925, Savinien Giraud, owner of Trotanoy and President of the Syndicat Viticole et Agricole de Pomerol, addressed a “classification” of Pomerol “grands crus” to the Bordeaux Chamber of Commerce. Clos L’Eglise was part of the “leading group”, (with l’Evangile, la Conseillante and Vieux Château Certan).

    In the 18th century, Clos L’Eglise with its 14 ha was a very large estate for Pomerol, ahead of a dozen Crus which formed and still form “the heart of Pomerol”. The history of Clos L’Eglise is linked to that of the vineyards “à Clinet”, a name that designates both place and ownership.

    The vineyard map by the engineer Belleyme indicated in 1764 that the vineyard holding starts from la Conseillante and by Petit-Village widens to Trop Ennuie (Trotanoy) and Clinet.

    Later, the property was named Clos L’Eglise and, with divisions on inheritance, the estate was split in two, with the original estate, Clos L’Eglise (Rouchut family) on one side and Clos L’Eglise-Clinet (Mauléon family) on the other.

    It was in 1997 that the Garcin-Cathiard family acquired the property.

    At Clos l’Eglise, the 5.90 hectares of Merlot and Cabernet Franc flourish on clay-gravel soils presenting slopes of iron-rich soil that give the wine its unique character. A place apart where things are done gently, a clear conversation between man and terroir. A jewel of nature.

    Hélène Garcin and Patrice Levêque cultivate this exceptional heritage today. The vision of this enthusiastic couple has allowed Clos l’Eglise to gradually regain the place it had a century ago, at the peak of the appellation.

    Their fascination for exceptional terroirs and their willingness to support them in giving the best they have to offer, here find the perfect opportunity to transcend themselves.

    This is why the work is done in a traditional way because, if fine terroir comes by chance, its rarity makes it a responsibility.

    It is no longer just a matter of working the soil, but rather of supporting a living organism, of carefully maintaining its habitat, and giving it the opportunity to express its full potential, its richness, and complexity.

    At Château Barde-Haut, Clos l'Eglise and Poesia, the winegrower's task is to interpret a masterpiece of nature: all efforts are focused on respecting its character, and giving it the most perfect expression.
