At the heart of Bourgneuf

A special care is taken for the management of the vineyard and the soil labour (plowing, harrowing…).
In 2007, pedological pit analyses were undertaken on the entire property so as to more precisely understand the sub-soils and the established root behavior of the vines.

Château Bourgneuf Vayron à Pomerol.

The entire green harvesting is undertaken by hand, which permits us to respond to the specific climatic conditions and the particularities of each vintage.
The harvesting is all hand -picked and on a by-parcel basis, finished at the optimal maturity date so as to preserve the brilliance of the fruit. After a careful sorting selection at reception the grapes are then lightly crushed.

The vinification is then undertaken in temperature controlled, cement vats.
The alcoholic fermentation is progressively conducted with manual pumping over for an extraction that is tapered to the vintage, which conserves the fruity, fresh and concentrated Merlots.
The barrel-ageing in French oak (35% new, 65% of one and two-wine barrels) is spread over a period of 12 to 14 months.
