Lalande Pomerol 2012

under 72 hours

The Champseix family has made wine at Château Vieux Chevrol for many generations in a traditional manner. 

The grey sandy clay and the iron hard pan layer Quaternary terrace of Vieux Chevrol, drained by the presence of sand and gravels, contribute to a rather ungiving soil where the “merlot” slowly takes root deep down to offer a small quantity of fruit with a specific character.

More info

The vineyard lies on the Neac plateau overlooking the vineyards of Pomerol. The soil is clay mixed with gravel and iron-rich sandstone known locally as “crasse de fer”. The vineyard is planted to 80%Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon.

At Vieux Chevrol, the wine is aged according to the vintage 12 to 18 months in 5 cm thick French sessile oak demi-muids ( 600 litres large casks); 10% of which are replaced each year. 

The vines have an average age of 30 years. Plowing is done four times a year to keep a balance in the vineyard and no chemicals are used to control weeds. Harvesting is done by hand and is carried out as late as possible to ensure full maturity of the grapes.

Fermentation occurs in temperature controlled tanks and maceration is extended to 5 weeks.
