Vineyards of Pomerol
Lalande de Pomerol
A stone’s throw from Libourne, Pomerol borders the Saint-Émilion appellation. This small area of about 800 ha offers a fairly bare landscape where the relative humility of the white houses that dot the vineyard, contrasts with the more opulent architecture of others wine estates. The real notoriety of Pomerol wines hardly dates back to the twentieth century. On essentially gravelly and clayey soils on iron grime of the appellation, where Merlot is king, sublime, intense and refined wines are born which it
is customary to say that they have the warmth and the sap of the great vintages of Saint-Émilion and the extreme delicacy of those from the Médoc.
Extending the territory of Pomerol to more than 1,100 hectares in the north, the Lalande de Pomerol appellation has a similar structure of soils. With a reputation probably more discreet, its wines, also from Merlot and Cabernet franc, have this unique sap and this wonderful velvety which represents the great wines of Libournais.
