Lalande de Pomerol and Pomerol wines
Lalande de Pomerol and Pomerol are considered the jewels of wines.

This area north-east of the city of Libourne is known as Libournais.
It stretches at the confluence of the Dordogne and Isle and is essentially devoted to wine (Pomerol, Fronsac, St-Emilion.)
The market is still held along the arcades of its central square nearby the 15th century town hall.
Lalande de Pomerol vineyard
The 800ha Lalande de Pomerol vineyard is the smallest in the Bordeaux wine region.
Wines acquire their unique character, flavour and colour from the stony soil locally know as grave.
Lalande de Pomerol is produced from a blend of Merlot, Cabernet-Franc, Cabernet-Sauvignon and Malbec.
Together they produced full-bodied, sensual and velvety wines with a deep colour and a unique violet and truffle bouquet.
Considered the Jewel of wines, Lalande de Pomerol have a fantastic ability to age.
They are at their best between 10 and 20 years of age, however, they already have incomparable particularities when young.
There is no ranking among Pomerol AOC where most of the châteaux are still family owned, however, the most celebrated is Château Pétrus.
