With more than 1300 hectares, the appellation Lalande de Pomerol stretches across the villages of Lalande de Pomerol and Néac, separated from the Pomerol vineyards by the river Barbanne.

The history of this vineyard goes back to the 12th century and to the period of the knights hospitaller of the order of Saint John of Jerusalem. The nature of the soil, like its prestigious neighbours, favours the Merlot grape variety. The wines are mainly assembled with Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon.

The appellation Lalande-de-Pomerol produces extremely elegant wines, belonging to the closed circle of the very best from Bordeaux!

Landscapes, diversity, history, vineyards, family properties

The Libournais is a highly varied vineyard territory. The appellations that compose it, between Pomerol, Saint-Emilion and Lalande-de-Pomerol, exhibit a wonderful diversity!

My property is located in the centre of the Lalande-de-Pomerol appellation. Its traditions have been handed from generation to generation and I hope they will continue long after I'm gone!

A place to discover, a unique landscape and of course all the ancestral know-how and talent of our winemakers, one of whom I am so proud to call myself!

You'll see that what I like most is exchanging views, the human dimension, discussing my job with all those who come to meet me!
