The modern history of Clos l'Église begins in 1997, when the property was purchased by Sylviane Garcin-Cathiard and the estate underwent major improvements to help modernize the winemaking facilities. Today, the estate continues under the guardianship of Sylvaine’s daughter Hélène Garcin-Lévêque along with her husband Patrice Lévêque. The duo harvests each parcel at varying levels of ripeness and vinifies each parcel separately before blending. This approach is to help accentuate the area’s distinctive terroir, as well as offer greater complexity and personality in each vintage. The resulting wines are "brilliant," according to Robert Parker. The 2009, in particular, "is one of the sexiest wines in Pomerol in this vintage, " he says, for its "fabulous purity" and bouquet of caramel, dark berry, and mocha flavors. Secure your bottles today.
