Le Château du Domaine de l’Eglise, the oldest vineyard in Pomerol

The estate, acquired by Émile Castéja in 1973 at the same time as Château Pignon (Lalande-de-Pomerol), is now run by his son, Philippe Castéja.

« I really liked this wine and
thought it would be good for
the house to have a Pomerol. »

Emile Castéja
