Winemaking

Chateau Pomeaux's vineyards are maintained in a meticulous manner and its wines are produced under the direction of Michel Rolland, one of the world's greatest and most celebrated winemakers and oenologists. Mr. Rolland's mandate from Chateau Pomeaux's owners is to create the highest quality wine possible.

Under Michel Rolland's direction, Chateau Pomeaux employs a combination of sophisticated vineyard and winemaking techniques, including rigorous double guyot pruning, green harvests, late picking to ensure optimum maturity, meticulous hand picking and sorting, destemming, rigid selection, lengthy temperature-controlled maceration and fermentation at high temperatures in small oak tanks, lengthy periods of malolactic fermentation in small new oak barrels, scrupulous vinification, and extended aging in new oak barrels.

The combination of magnificent terroir, the decision of Chateau Pomeaux's owners to sacrifice quantity to produce an ultra-high quality wine, and the winemaking expertise of Michel Rolland results in Chateau Pomeaux producing wines of the highest possible quality and elegance.

Chateau Pomeaux's wines have received highly favorable commentary from leading wine journalists and publications.
