  • A rich and plump Pomerol showing a lovely textured combination of earthy flavours complemented by opulent chocolate notes. The nose bursts with blackberries, exotic spices, and smoky oak and cedar hints. The palate is rich and generous, with soft tannins. The finish is good freshness and full of lingering ripe fruit.

Fermentation took place in small temperature-controlled concrete vats for 28 days. The wine was matured for 15 months in oak barrels, of which one-third was new; one-third was one-year-old oak, and one-third was two-year-old oak. The wine was aged on its fine lees, without any racking.

Winery

Chateau de Valois dates back to 1862 when the original vineyards of Chateau Figeac were restructured. In 1962, Bernard Leydet owned the vineyard comprising eight hectares. Over time, he added to the Pomerol plots and concentrated on improving the quality through improved vineyard management techniques and investment in the cellar. In 1996, Bernard’s son Frederic Leydet took over, continuing the legacy left by his father and producing truly great Pomerol wines. 

Located on the southern slopes of the plateau of the Pomerol appellation, the vines are double Guyot trained. The vineyard soils are gravel and sand with subsoil of iron pan. The harvest takes place manually.
