Château Guillot-Clauzel is a family-owned wine producer in the Pomerol appellation of Bordeaux, France. The property has been in the hands of the Guillot family for many years; Bernard Guillot brought the Clauzel name into the estate by marrying Marie-Claude Clauzel in the 1970s. The couple's union combined the two family names, leading to the formation of Guillot-Clauzel.
A mix of clay and limestone soils characterises the terroir. This unique combination contributes to producing wines with remarkable complexity and structure. Merlot is the dominant grape variety grown on the property, reflecting the region's traditional style, where Merlot-based blends are prevalent.
Guillot-Clauzel is known for its commitment to traditional winemaking practices and a focus on producing wines that express the essence of their terroir. The estate follows sustainable and environmentally friendly viticultural practices, ensuring the health of the vineyards and the surrounding ecosystem.
The winemaking process involves careful selection of grapes, gentle handling, and ageing in a combination of French oak barrels to enhance the wine's character and complexity. The result is elegant, well-structured wines that can age gracefully over time.
