Château au Pont de Guîtres, Lalande de Pomerol

The Château au Pont de Guîtres has been passed from generation to generation and it has flourished in size and innovation. In 1986, Rémy Rousselot took over the estate from his parents and along with his wife Ghislaine, they have gradually added plots from the best terroirs and today it comprises four hectares. They continue to improve winemaking techniques while respecting family traditions and cultivate the vines following sustainable principles. Together with their son Cyril, they are passionate about producing top quality wines from their family estate in the Lalande-de-Pomerol appellation.

The vineyard is cultivated according to la lutte raisonnée, which promotes sustainable agricultural methods and reduces the amount of chemicals, in order to respect the land and its environment. The grapes were separated according to the parcel, the age of the vine and the grape variety. Vinification took place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. Maceration lasted for 15 to 30 days, ensuring the desired extraction of colour, flavour and structure. Fermented, before being pneumatically pressed and transferred to French oak barrels for 18 months’ maturation.

Garnet in colour, this wine offers a wonderful aromatic nose full of vibrant red and black fruity notes, underpinned by a hint of spice. Silky and beautifully balanced on the palate with concentrated fruit flavours leading to a long, appealing finish.
