Gombaude-Guillot, Pomerol 2019Regular price $125.00 Save $-125.00
Variety: Merlot & Cabernet Franc
This legendary Bordeaux winemaking family has been growing vines in Pomerol for so long that the current generation doesn’t even know when they were acquired. Today Claire Laval runs the estate; she is one of two women in Pomerol that have been inducted into the male-dominated Confrerie des Hospitaliers de Pomerol. It almost doesn’t matter that the wines of Pomerol don’t have a classification as the local standards are rather high and other vignerons are well aware of Gombaude-Guillot's quality. Even local Allier oak is thoughtfully used for the wine barrels.
This Right Bank blend is mostly Merlot with the remaining 15% being Cabernet Franc. Local Allier oak is used for aging, generally 50% of the oak of which is new.
