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.
