About Wines from Pomerol, Bordeaux, France
Best wine supplier in Philippines discusses wine related topics

Pomerol is the smallest of the great appellations in Bordeaux. Red wines make up almost all the production. Merlot is the dominant grape in Pomerol (as it is in St. Emilion) and the wines from this area often contain 80% or more of that variety. The Merlot variety produces wines in Pomerol that are soft, full of fruit and rich in flavor. Even though the Merlot grape produces wonderful wines in this Pomerol, the real reason that it is grown here is that frosts arrive earlier in this region than in the Medoc. Merlot ripens earlier than Cabernet Sauvignon and is much more likely to produce a mature crop. The second, most used grape in Pomerol is Cabernet Franc.
Pomerol estates tend to be much smaller than their counterparts in the Medoc region. There are only about 1800 acres of vineyards in Pomerol. These vineyards are spread among the roughly 150 estates that produce an average of 1000 to 4000 cases each. In the Medoc region, the estates are generally much larger with production in the 10,000 to 20,000 case range for most of the estates.
There has never been an official classification of the chateaux of Pomerol. Even without an official classification, there are several properties that have distinguished themselves based on the consistent quality they have achieved over many years.
The soils of Pomerol range from a gravel and clay mixture found in the eastern part of the commune to a lighter soil with more sand in the west. The Plateau of Pomerol is a gravel deposit on the east side of Pomerol where most of the famous and well known chateaux are located. Within this gravel deposit you will find clay in quatities that range from a mixture with the gravel to actual pockets of almost pure clay. The most famous chateau of Pomerol is Chateau Petrus. Petrus is located on one of the pockets of clay on the plateau. The wines from the plateau are fuller, richer and generally better than those from the sandy area to the west.
