Château de Chambrun

Lalande de Pomerol 2019

The property of Chambrun was established between the two world wars by the Chollet family. In 1994, Jean-Philippe Janoueix purchased the 1.70-hectare plot and renamed the property “Château de Chambrun”. In 2007, Silvio Denz became the owner of the estate and increased its size to 5.14 hectares. In 2015, Château Moncets, an important property in the Lalande de Pomerol AOC, acquired the Chambrun vineyard. At the same time, a little over 3 hectares of Merlot were purchased, and in 2019, the estate expanded by another 5 hectares on the famous plateau of Néac, thus completing the fragmented establishment of this dynamic vineyard, which now covers 13.84 hectares.

The vineyard of Château de Chambrun, mainly composed of Merlot, benefits from a terroir of deep black clay and surface gravel, offering grapes of excellent quality due to its homogeneity thanks to mass selection. In addition, as a complement to the reasoned farming practices carried out in the vineyards for several years, the estate has been engaged in organic agriculture since 2017. In this environmental approach, a pond was created in the northern part of the Chateau park with the aim of increasing floral and animal biodiversity by promoting the emergence of an ecosystem fully integrated into the operation.


Tasting review

Color: intense purple hue, beautiful intensity.
Nose: subtle aromas of black fruits, blackberries, blueberries, slightly minty, becoming richer after aeration, exhaling notes of blond tobacco and liquorice.
Palate: a beautiful fleshy palate with melted and well-rounded tannins. Good balance and length on the palate, with a saline finish.
Pairing: wild boar leg with porcini mushrooms and potatoes.
Comment: an extremely elegant wine.
