2020 Château du Domaine de L'Eglise  (Pomerol) 96

Licorice, black plums, flowers, dark chocolate, smoke, espresso and wet earth create the attention seeking perfume. The wine is concentrated, full-bodied and intense. The fruit is sensuous, velvety and flamboyant, finishing with layers of opulent, silky, perfectly ripe plums, blackberries and cherries, Asian spice and dark chocolate that expands as it lingers for at least 50 seconds. This could be the best deal for high-quality Pomerol today. Give it at least 7-8 years in the cellar and enjoy it for 2 decades after that. 95-97 Pts

2019 Château du Domaine de L'Eglise  (Pomerol) 97

The color is so dark it tells you that you're not in Kansas anymore. Flowers, licorice, truffle, spice, wet earth, smoke and plum liqueur aromatics get noticed easily. In the mouth, this rockstar wine coats your palate with fruit that does not quit. Opulence bordering on decadence in texture, the fruit feels like polished velvet. Rich and nuanced, concentrated and fresh, the fruit, earth and bitter chocolate endnote sticks with you for over 50 seconds. Produced from a blend of 97% Merlot and 3%, this is so good, I want some for my cellar. This is the finest wine ever produced here in the history of the estate and should age effortlessly for 3 decades. 96-98 Pts

2016 Château du Domaine de L'Eglise  (Pomerol) 91

With a little bit of truffle poking through the fruit, the wine is starting to tighten up. Still, with a little effort you can find the sweetness of the fruit that are only made by better by the silkiness in the tannins. But you need to wait at least 3-4 years before this starts to reopen. The wine was made from a blend of 96% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc. 91 Points

2015 Château du Domaine de L'Eglise  (Pomerol) 90

Black raspberries, night blooming blossoms, cocoa, a smattering of fennel and a touch of mint on the nose. Medium-bodied, silky tannins, soft in texture with a cocoa-dusted, earthy flair and fresh, black cherries in the finish. Unfortunately, there is a hint of bitterness in the finish that prohibits this wine from scoring higher. The wine was made from a blend of 94% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc. 89 - 91 Pts

2010 Château du Domaine de L'Eglise  (Pomerol) 88

Medium bodied, developing nicely, there is an enjoyable display of ripe, plums, coffee bean, licorice, earth and black cherries. Soft, with tannins remaining to resolve, this blend of 93% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc could be even better with a few more years of age. 88 Points

2009 Château du Domaine de L'Eglise  (Pomerol) 90

Truffle, licorice, smoke and roasted plums come together on the nose and ripe, sweet, spicy, soft textured, plums come together on the palate. This is fully mature and will best of the next 4-6 years. The wine was made from a blend of 96% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc. 90 Points

Medium bodied, with a coffee, plum and earthy scented perfume. Not all that concentrated, but the fruit is sweet and good freshness, the texture is plush and the tannins are round. From a blend of 96% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc, this is a fairly priced, chaming Pomerol. 90 Points

2008 Château du Domaine de L'Eglise  (Pomerol) 87

Ready to drink, this medium bodied wine kicks off with wet earth, thyme and cherry scents. Soft and easy to drink, the wine lacks some depth and character. Subsequent vintages are much better. 87 Points

2004 Château du Domaine de L'Eglise  (Pomerol) 89

Not the most delicate Pomerol, but the plummy fruits, cherries and earthy characteristics work nicely here. Medium bodied, and on its way to round, the finish delivers bright, fresh, red berries. 89 Points

1953 Château du Domaine de L'Eglise  (Pomerol) 85

For a wine not known for aging, this was a revelation. The aromatics offered sherry, tobacco leaf, thyme and bright red fruits. The medium-bodied palate was still going, leaving you with orange, citrus and bright, cherries. 85 Points
