Average Score 91.13

25% frosted but no second generation fruit used. The grapes here are planted on the deep gravels of the Pomerol plateau, and it has definitely come out of the difficult early season strongly. It's extremely powerful, and very complex in its dark fruit and menthol layering, with a tight tannic structure and an austere character - this is not a vintage for hedonists like 2015 was but is a serious wine with good ageing ability.
This is fresh and intense with blueberry and dark-fruit character. Minerals and stones. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a bright finish.
The 2017 Domaine de l’Eglise lost one-quarter of its production to frost, the final yield clocking in at 32hl/ha. It is matured in 51% new oak. This has a more precise bouquet than the La Croix de Casse that is also owned by the Castéja family of Borie Manoux offering scents of blackberry, redcurrant, truffle and light brine aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with a fine core of graphite-tinge black fruit that segues into a nicely detailed, almost flinty finish that was much more precise in the sample shown at Trottevieille towards the end of my visit. It should drink well for up to 12 years, possibly more, although I would have liked to see more flair, more complexity.
About 30% of the vines were affected by frost this year. A blend of 97% Merlot with 3% Cabernet Franc, the 2017 Domaine de l'Eglise is medium to deep garnet-purple colored with a nose of baked cherries, mulberries and preserved plums with touches of dried herbs, damp soil and smoked meats. The palate is medium-bodied, firm and chewy with oodles of freshness and an herbal lift on the finish. Apr 2018, www.robertparker.com
