POMEROL In 1882, Mr Mauléon-Rouchut, great great grandfather of Denis Durantou, brought together different plots of Clos L’Eglise and Domaine de Clinet, which his family had acquired in the 18th century, to make up a 4.5 hectare vineyard around the church of Saint John of Pomerol.

GRAPE VARIETIES Spared by the recent frosts of 1956, 1985 and 1987, the Merlot plants (85%) and the Cabernet Franc plants (15%) have reached an average age of 40 years. PRUNING AND DENSITY "Bordelaise" and Single Guyot pruning techniques, organic compost every 5 years, 6,500 plants per hectare. HARVESTING After daily tastings of the berries and with a team of 30 pickers, the harvest is carried out swiftly thanks to the leaf-stripping and crop thinning done in August and September.

  • This is pertinent to that other thread I started on product placements (sortof) in movies and TV. But I'm pained to say also deserves posting here because it is actually, at this far into the 21st century, good QPR for Bordeaux reds, whether merlot- or cab-centric. Both are excellent wines in their respective ways, and they were fortunately neve... Read More
