Producer Note
The Château au Pont de Guîtres has been passed from generation to generation
and over the years it has flourished in size and innovation. In 1986, Rémy Rousselot
took over the estate from his parents and along with his wife Ghislaine, they have
gradually added plots from the best terroirs and today it comprises four hectares.
They continue to improve winemaking techniques while respecting family traditions
and cultivate the vines following sustainable principles. Together with their son Cyril,
they are passionate about producing top quality wines from their family estate in the
Lalande-de-Pomerol appellation.


Vintage
Generous flowering took place followed by a hot, dry early summer. August was
slightly cooler and damper, followed by good weather in September enabling the
grapes to reach full maturity. Generally the harvest took place earlier than the
previous year. 2015 has been cited as a great modern Bordeaux vintage of excellent
quality.


Vineyard
Located on the best terroirs of the Lalande-de-Pomerol appellation, the plots are
situated on sandy gravelly clay soils, which produce wines with good ageing
potential. The vines, which have an average age of 15 years, are planted at a
density of 5,500 vines per hectare and yield 48 hectolitres per hectare. They are
pruned according to traditional Bordeaux methods. The vineyard is cultivated
according to la lutte raisonnée, which promotes sustainable agricultural methods
and reduces the amount of chemicals, in order to respect the land and its
environment. Harvesting takes place when the grapes have reached optimal
maturity.


Winemaking
The grapes were separated according to the parcel, the age of the vine and the
grape variety. Vinification took place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks.
Maceration lasted for 15 to 30 days, ensuring the desired extraction of colour, flavour
and structure. Fermentation took place at controlled temperatures of 15 to 27°C
before the young wine was pneumatically pressed and transferred to French oak
barrels for 18 months’ maturation.


Tasting Note
Garnet in colour this wine offers a wonderful aromatic nose full of vibrant red and
black fruity notes, underpinned by a hint of spice. Silky and beautifully balanced on
the palate with concentrated fruit flavours leading to a long, appealing finish.
