The Story

This great château is located on the plateau of Pomerol next to its famous neighbours Château LAFLEUR and Château PETRUS. It was acquired by Ets. Jean- Pierre MOUEIX in 1953.
Today the estate is composed 90% of Merlot with an average vine age of 30 years and 10% of Cabernet Franc with an average vine age of 50 years.  Christian Moueix' obsessive work in the vineyard focuses on sap flow and the treatment of each vine individually.  In the cellar, vinifications are extremely precise but quite traditional: vinification in cement and stainless steel, aging in oak barriques for 18-22 months (usually ~50% new oak).
