2020 Chateau L’Eglise
Spread over 29 hectares made up of clay-limestone and sandy-silty soil and sub soil, Chateau L’Eglise is owned by the Dieuxyssies family which also run a thriving nursey business that provides young vines to growers across Bordeaux.
A blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc aged in oak barrels. Deep black dark red colour with a dark red hue. Expressive ripe red currant aromas are followed by hints of liquorice, scorched earth, dried herb and spicy tobacco notes. Medium bodied, generous red to black currant fruits overlay a vanillin cedar, earth and subtle spicy tobacco back drop. Fine grained tannins concluding with a lingering vanillin cedar element.
Drink over the next 4-5 years.
