The Château au Pont de Guîtres
The Château au Pont de Guîtres has been passed from generation to generation and over the years it has flourished in size and innovation. In 1986, Rémy Rousselot took over the estate from his parents and along with his wife Ghislaine, they have gradually added plots from the best terroirs and today it comprises four hectares. They continue to improve winemaking techniques while respecting family traditions and cultivate the vines following sustainable principles.
Located on the best terroirs of the Lalande-de-Pomerol appellation, the plots are situated on sandy gravelly clay soils, which produce wines with good ageing potential.
The vines, which have an average age of 15 years, are planted at a density of 5,500 vines per hectare and yield 48 hectolitres per hectare. They are pruned according to traditional Bordeaux methods. The vineyard is cultivated according to la lutte raisonnée, which promotes sustainable agricultural methods and reduces the amount of chemicals, in order to respect the land and its environment.
