Chateau de Valois Pomerol 2018

A rich and plump Pomerol showing a lovely textured

Producer Note
Château de Valois dates back to 1862 when the original vineyards of Château 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 Frédéric Leydet took over, continuing the legacy left by his
father and producing truly great Pomerol wines.
Vineyard
Located on the southern slopes of the plateau of the Pomerol appellation, the vines are
double Guyot trained. The vineyard soils are made up of gravel and sand with a subsoil
of the iron pan. The harvest takes place manually.
Winemaking
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.
Tasting Note
The nose is bursting with blackberries, exotic spice, and hints of smoky oak and cedar.
On the palate, the texture is rich and generous, with soft tannins. The finish has a good
freshness and is full of lingering ripe fruit.
