Description

Chateau Pierrefitte is the second wine of Chateau Perron which is located in Néac, a district of Lalande de Pomerol.

Chateau Perron is located near the 12th century church of Lalande de Pomerol which was built by the Hospitallers of St John of Jerusalem, Knights of Malta. Perron was built in 1642 and is one of the oldest properties in the town. Chateau Perron has been owned by the same family for three generations. The chateau was acquired by Auguste Massonie and his son Michel-Pierre in 1958. Since 2000, Michel-Pierre’s three children, Beatrice, Bertrand and Thibaut represent Chateau Perron. With investment and a new partnership with the Crouvezier family from the Vosge they have expanded their vineyards from 23 hectares to 36 hectares.  The vineyards are pllanted with 80% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc. Since the 2019 their vineyard has been in organic conversion with the certifying organization Ecocert.

Chateau Pierrefitte is a blend of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon from vines with an average age of 55 years old. The harvest is done both manually and mechanically followed by sorting of the bunches at the vineyard (on a vibrating table with a Mistral grape sorting system). The wine is vinified in the traditional manner followed by malolactic fermentation. The wine is aged for approximately 12 months, 50% in used barriques and 50% in vat and then bottled two years after the date of harvest.

Tasting Notes
