Although never officially classified, the wines of Pomerol have nonetheless been able to rise on their own merits to become some of the best, as well as some of the most expensive in Bordeaux. With its clay and gravel soils planted predominantly to Merlot and a lesser amount of Cabernet Franc, this small right-bank region totals less than 800 hectares, and is marked more by its understated farm-house wineries than by grand chateaux.
Now, not content to merely rest on their reputation, many producers in the region have formed an association to further promote Pomerol and its wines. The group, Pomerol Séduction, is currently an assemblage of nine vintners, including Château Beauregard, Château Clinet, Clos du Clocher, Château La Conseillante, Château Gazin, Château Mazeyres, Château Petit Village, Château Rouget and Château Vieux Maillet. Join us as we speak with several representatives from Pomerol Séduction to hear how Pomerol differs from other regions in Bordeaux, and how they differ from each other within Pomerol.
