Description

In the heart of the prestigious Pomerol appellation, Château Bourgneuf is spread over 9 hectares in one unique holding. Bourgneuf has belonged to the Vayron family since 1840. Eight generations have succeeded each other, transmitting their love for this land and its history.

“We have had the privilege to have inherited Château Bourgneuf in the 70’s, a veritable jewel in the heart of Pomerol, and have become the transmitters of a unique place and its history.  This spot has left its mark on us during 40 years of our careful attention, vigilance and care so as “to give birth to a juice that is the most pure and most powerful” from this earth that is labored and loved.  To seek this wine, that is the profound expression of the meeting between the soil and the personality, is to seek creation.” (By Xavier and Dominique Vayron)

Tasting Note

This is a positive and forceful effort from Bourgneuf, which tends to produce tannic and rustic wines. The 2012 is neither astringent, earthy nor too rustic. Its deep ruby/purple color is accompanied by notes of black currants, black cherries, cola, forest floor and coffee beans. Fresh and medium to full-bodied with excellent concentration and a nicely textured, clean finish, it can be enjoyed over the next 10-15 years.
