Chateau Le Bon Pasteur

Chateau Le Bon Pasteur

Château Le Bon Pasteur is a small Pomerol property that has been run by guru oenologist Michel Rolland and his wife Dany since 1978. Le Bon Pasteur's 7-hectare vineyard is located in the north-east of the appellation between the vineyards of L`Evangile, Gazin and Cheval-Blanc on the St.Emilion border. The vines have a high average age (40 years) and the vineyard is planted with 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. Yields are tightly restricted and the grapes are picked only at optimum ripeness.

Le Bon Pasteur's grapes are hand-picked and are fermented in temperature-controlled-stainless steel vats. The wine is then matured in oak casks (80% new) for 18-20 months. It is bottled unfined and unfiltered. Le Bon Pasteur produce supremely well-balanced Pomerols that are supple and packed with juicy, lush Merlot fruit. They are approachable young but usually benefit from around 7-10 years of cellaring.
