Description

Our property, one of the largest in Pomerol, has embarked on an extensive improvement project in the aim of expressing the full potential of this vineyard and enhancing its image : Firstly, a complete soil survey was undertaken to optimize the drainage system, revealing great potential for improvement in the quality of our grapes. The Cabernet Sauvignon plants were simply torn out and the yields of Cabernet Francs were carefully mastered, allowing them to better express the great finesse and elegance that has always been the reputation of the Right Bank. Secondly, considerable renovation work has been carried out in the vinification cellars, respecting today’s environmental concerns and enabling us to vinify plot by plot according to the particularities of each area of the vineyard. Last but not least, we have called upon Mr Hubert de Boüard de Laforest, co-owner of Château Angelus and world-renowned winemaking consultant, to share his valuable experience and expertise with the team at Château La Pointe.
