Juicy fruit, smoky character, firm structured, suitable for aging.

The reputation of the Château has been well-established since 1770. At that time the winemaker of the domain earned the sobriquet, “The king of grape varieties”. Then in 1872, this superb property was handed over to the Family of the General de Moncets. Through much patience, a contiguous domain was developed at the crossroads of four vineyards known for their prestigious crus: Montagne, Néac, Saint-Emilion and Pomerol.

Grown in the heart of the Bordeaux region, this elegant Lalande-De-Pomerol is cultivated on a 19-hectare estate in accordance with sustainable agricultural methods. High planting density: 5,500 to 6,500 vine stocks/ha. Soil: sandy clay.

VARIETALS: 66% Merlot, 32% Cabernet Franc, 2% Cabernet Sauvignon

VITICULTURE AND VINIFICATION: The grapes are transported to the cellar by gravity before being selected manually on a sorting table. The wines are matured in French barrels for 16 months (with 25% of new barrels and 1-year-old barrels for the rest).

FOOD PAIRING: Excellent with game and red meat. A must-have with cheese, especially oven-roasted Camembert.

SUSTAINABLE.
