Situated just north of Pomerol across the slight Barbanne Stream, Lalande-de-Pomerol has a history dating back almost as long as its illustrious neighbour. The best terroir of the area is the clay, gravel and sand soils of the Neac commune where Château Vieux Chevrol have their vineyard. Jean-Pierre Champseix and his family have made wine at Château Vieux Chevrol for many generations, and his fastidious attention to detail both in the vineyard and in the cellar is evident is his wines. The vineyard is planted to 80% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon.
A Great Value Bordeaux that’s very savoury, offering immediate drinking pleasure.
Opaque black dark red colour with a dark red hue. The nose is quite perfumed with violet infused blackcurrant top notes followed by a touch of liquorice, earthy cedar and spice. Medium bodied with an elegant mouthfeel the palate has good richness and features gorgeous ripe blackcurrant fruit over some cedar, light earth and spice. Very fine grained beautifully integrated tannins. Dry finish with a long blackcurrant, cedary earth and spice aftertaste.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.

The 2015 Clos l'Hermitage has an expressive bouquet with dark cherries and blueberry fruit, very well defined with light oyster shell scents. The palate is well balanced with fleshy red fruit, a pleasant savory touch with a nicely structured, sappy finish that lingers in the mouth. This is a fine Lalande-de-Pomerol that should age well over several years.

2005 Bordeaux has received widespread critical acclaim as one of the greatest vintages in living memory and this has not been restricted to just the classified growths . Many of the lesser known terroirs or appellations have excelled in 2005, Robert Parker stating “…these are some of the finest wine bargains of the world…”
Parker describes the wines from such Estates as 'Little Big Ones', adding 'These wines represent many earnest, sincere, over-achieving men and women who are taking unheralded, less prestigious terroirs and turning out brilliant wines...If you are a wine consumer, this is where to spend your money'.Winemaker Pascal Delbeck is one of Bordeaux’s leading winemakers, who for 20 years was responsible for the wines produced at Chateau Ausone. This wine is composed of a blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Very deep crimson mauve colour with mauve hue. Top note of blackcurrant, spice and confectionary. The palate has good weight with flavours of confectionary, blackcurrant, spice and truffle. Fine grained tannins. Long aftertaste of blackcurrant and spice.
