Lalande de Pomerol AOC

Located just a few vine rows from the superb 12th Century church in Lalande de Pomerol, the estate originally consisted of a gravelly 2-hectare plot in the commune of Lalande de Pomerol. Château Sablard du Grand Moine’s winery has all the latest technical innovations. Double insulation prevents major changes in temperature and small stainless steels vats enable single plot vinification.

Grape varieties :

Merlot 90% – Cabernet Franc 10%

Vineyard:

The total area of the vineyard is 14 hectares, eight of these are located in a single block surrounding a modern, functional cellar built in 1992. The vines are 25 years old, and take place on a sandy soil with gravelly subsoil.

Winemaking:

The grapes are destemmed and crushed before fermentation. The wine is kept on the skins for 3 to 4 weeks before being run off and put into barrels. A third of the oak barrels is renewed every year.

Tasting Note:

This wine has a deep red color with crushed cherry hue. On the nose delicate notes of oak and red fruits emerge followed by a velvety attack, well balanced and of good sweetness. It is full bodied with a delicate fruity and vanilla finish.

Food Pairing:

This wine goes perfectly along with white meat such as chicken or turkey, it will also be a nice companion for a BBQ with friends.
