En Primeur Château du Domaine de l’Eglise will be available for delivery or storage once it lands in the UK, usually two years following the en primeur offer.
It is in 1589 that the name is mentioned for the first time in the ‘Vieux Papiers du Libournais’, which makes Domaine de l’Eglise the oldest estate referenced on Pomerols famous plateau. Originally the property of the church from where it gets its name, it was a hospice for people with diseases that were excluded from the general population. The estate was secularised in the 18th century.
The 7 hectare Pomerol vineyard of Domaine de L’Eglise is planted to 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc. On average, the vines are an impressive 40 years of age. The vineyard is planted to a vine density of 7,200 vines per hectare. The terroir is mostly gravel and sand with clay soil.
En Primeur pricing is per case as specified and excludes UK duty and VAT, which will be charged at the prevailing rate when the wine is released from bond for delivery. Bonded storage is available. Onward delivery or transfer is not included and can be quoted for on request. Free delivery on orders over £100 does not apply to bonded or en primeur wines.
