The generosity of a terroir, the harmony of the varieties, the fruit and the work of man…
The Château La Ganne has been exploited for four generations by the dubois-Lachaud family who have endeavoured to enhance their terroir with passion. Nowadays, Paule and Michel work hard to ensure continuity.
With its 750 ha, Pomerol is considered as one of the smallest appellations in Gironde in terms of area but as one of the most famous in terms of quality.
Situated in the south west of Pomerol, the Château La Ganne is an average property of 4 ha .
An appellation that could make a wine lover out of anyone.
Composed of a topsoil made up of grave land sandy deposits and a subsoil rich in « crasse de fer », the soil has a fascinating geological composition that gives our wine its exceptional velvety tannins and its delicate aromas.
The entire vineyard is given over to ORGANIC AGRICULTURE. For the new plantings, the soils are cultivated in the traditional way and the many tasks are carried out by hand to respect the vines. For good aeration, the tillage of our old vines is carried out in the traditional ways of the past, using the horse. Both the terroir and the care of our vines reflects well for the production of our exceptional wines.
Merlot vines, the king of Pomerol, accounts for 90 percent of vines planted while the last 10 percent planted are Cabernet Franc.
Here the harvests are done manually and a vibrating table MISTRAL accelerates and levels the harvest : berries and waste acquire then different trajectories ; efficient system to purify the harvest.
We try hard to keep only the best of the grape.
The vinification endeavours to gently reveal the richness of our grapes by long thermo-regulated macerations.
The ancestral vineyard savoir-faire inherited from our parents and the use of the most recent technology results in the elaboration of a wine of character
The elevage of the whole wine, during twelve months, in new oak barrels for one third will make it possible for the wine to get its elegance and its complexity.
A simple fining with fresh egg white will lead to the bottling in the Château, eighteen to twenty four months after the harvest depending on the vintages.
