  • Winemaker Notes Situated on the outskirts of Castelnau du Médoc, between Margaux and Saint-Julien , and on the highest ridge of the AOC Moulis, Château Pomeys has established facilities combining tradition and modernity. Under the leadership of its owner Patrick Meynard, who also owns Château Lalaudey à Moulis, everything is done to meet a high quality objective. Herbicides are forbidden, and the Château aims to reconnect with the ancient practice of tillage.
  • Tasting Notes The fruit of a classic Bordeaux vintage, Pomeys 2010 is an intense, brilliant crimson in color with a nose displaying frank aromas of black-berried fruits and spices. The vanilla and roasted notes bear witness to masterful ageing in oak. Remarkable structure and length underpinned by fine, velvety tannins. Wine aficionados will rightly recognize this as the product of a great terroir.
