Chateau Siaurac is located at the end of the Pomerol plateau, in Neac, in the Lalande-de-Pomerol appellation. The chateau represents three centuries of history and is established on the edge of the Barbane on the border of Pomerol.
The 46.18-hectare vineyard is planted in a mosaic of soils made up of gravel, deep clay and clayey sand. This exceptional Lalande-de-Pomerol vineyard is divided into 40 plots in one piece. The vineyard is in full organic conversion and already certified High Environmental Value 3. The vines are aged by 30 years on average.
The historically rainy winter was followed by a hot and humid spring. The hard work done by the chateau’s teams allowed for good soil management and protected the vines against various pressures. The hot and dry conditions from mid-May incited a flowering which ranked amongst the earliest. From 19 June, the rain gave way to cool and dry weather up to the start of ripening in mid-July. Although the summer was hot and dry, the stormy episodes in mid-August were beneficial for healthy vine development and berry ripening. Harvests began about 10 days in advance compared to recent years.
