This fine right bank property has been in the Guichard family since 1832 and at 42 hectares (110 acres), situated next to the Pomerol plateau, it is the largest estate in Lalande. The imposing château is surrounded by parkland and vineyards. The soils are a mixture of gravel and clay.
85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc.
After a traditional fermentation the wine is aged for 12 months in French oak, 15% of which is new.
Dark in appearance the nose is richly perfumed and very enticing. The palate is full and generous with plenty of ripe fruit – cherry and blackcurrant- and gentle tannic strucure – very attractive claret from a great vintage.
