The Vineyards

Chateau Pomeaux's two hectares vineyards are located in a magnificent situation on the southeastern slope of the Pomerol plateau near the border of the communes of Pomerol and St. Emilion. Chateau Pomeaux's vines, which are 100% Merlot Noir, average over 40 years of age and the property's soil is a combination of gravel, clay, and ferruginous sand with iron-pan and clay in the subsoil.

Chateau Pomeaux produces an extraordinarily rich and robust wine with elegant balance and a delicate and marvellous bouquet. Chateau Pomeaux's vineyards are located approximately 1 mile from Chateau Petrus, approximately one-half mile from Chateau Le Pin and Vieux Chateau Certan, and approximately one-quarter mile from Chateau Cheval Blanc.
