The flagship winery of the Lalande-de-Pomerol appellation, owner Hubert de Boüard de Laforest comes from the family of Château Angélus in Saint-Émilion. The vineyards are sustainably farmed on clay-loam topsoil and gravelly subsoil on the plateau of Néac. Natural gravity throughout the cellar curbs any use of pumps, making for the gentlest extraction possible, while optimising the volume of free-run wine. A nitrogen generator is used to deoxygenate the wines, thereby reducing the doses of SO2 required, while eliminating any form of oxidation. Maceration for 3-5 weeks with malolactic occurring in barrel. The wine is aged for 18-24 months in barrel with 75-80% new oak. No fining or filtration.

 

Sustainable.
