Château Bourgneuf

2009

Pomerol

Since 1821, the Vayron family has owned and run Château Bourgneuf, which consists of a single 21-acre plot in the heart of Pomerol. The plot's soil of mixed clay and gravel nurtures depth and power resulting in naturally concentrated wines. Traditional vinification allows for wine that remains true to its terroir.

One of 50 Bordeaux producers who "made the cut for crafting great wine values," Wine Spectator’s James Suckling and Jo Cooke said the Vayron family's "meticulous, hands-on approach to their wine includes very low yields from their Merlot vines, planted on one of the sunniest slopes of the Pomerol plateau, near Trotanoy."

Roger Voss, writing for Decanter, named Château Bourgneuf a rising star and one of 20 Right Bank châteaux to watch. He said the wine is "made with as much care as the appellation's best crus" and the style is moving towards a "sense of balance and harmony."
