There are just 6 hectares of vines at Clos L’Eglise planted with 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Franc on clay and gravel soils. Helene Garcin-Leveque has invested heavily in this estate. With such exceptional terroir it is probably only a matter of time before this 1250 case cuvee becomes one of the superstars of the commune.
The region produces Merlot-dominated wines which can offer great value similar in style to the wines of Pomerol but with less concentration. The soils are gravely and well-drained.
