A passion for wine
An outstanding terroir cannot alone explain the success of Lalande de Pomerol
wines. It took experience, know how and, above all, a long tradition of passion
to make wine that reflected the soil, and was worthy of the world's best tables.
Lalande de Pomerol is a wine suited to the most prestigious celebrations. Lalande
de Pomerol gladdens the heart and the mind, as well as promoting friendship
Such a fine wine is not the result of improvisation…
Consider the grape vine… It lives as long as the winegrower. It takes
a lifetime to choose the right rootstock, fertiliser, pruning methods etc. -
some forty years, thousands of hours of observation, thought, and passionate
Consider wine… Its long ageing from fermentation up until the moment
it is poured in the glass. Barrels, racking, topping up, fining…. What
an incredible amount of scientific studies, cautious choices and tender loving
care it all takes!
It is also essential to know how to inherit this winemaking know-how - and to
be able to pass it on to the younger generation. Each winegrower should contribute
to local tradition, and be able to adapt and start over again with patience
The men and women of our region have showed their ability to do this, with good
humour and passion. Each of the appellation's estates and chateaux reflect these
traditions. Drinking a Lalande de Pomerol is a way of communing with centuries
of passion and tradition.
We invite you to meet our winegrowers and visit our cellars. You will understand
