About This Vineyard

This organic estate is located in the north-western section of the Pomerol appellation, close to the neighbouring vineyards of Lalande-de-Pomerol and distant from the most typical Pomerol terroirs. The soil here is – as the name suggests – largely gravelly, mixed with sand. There are a little less than 8 hectares of vineyard planted with 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc, the average age of the vines being in excess of 20 years.

The vines are farmed using biodynamics and see a green harvest with de-leafing as the growing season progresses. The eventual harvest is naturally by hand, with fermentation in temperature-controlled concrete vats, nothing out of the ordinary for Pomerol. Once completed the wine goes into oak for 20 months, with judicious use of new barrels, typically 25%. The end result is the grand vin, La Grave à Pomerol, and there is also a second wine – which is more likely to take the fruit from the more sandy soils – named Domaine Trigant de Boisset. Altogether the production amounts to about 3000 cases.
