About The Winery
The vineyard spreads among 2 districts : Néac (clayey soil) and Lalande de Pomerol (deep gravels). The vineyard belongs to the Rénie family for several generations and is under Domaine du Grand Ormeau responsibility since 1996.
Cultivation on the vineyard is done by traditional methods with mechanical work of the soil, sustainable agriculture, hand thinning out of leaves and bunches. After destemming and crushing, the grapes are left to macerate in cold temperatures for 3 to 5 days in order to extract a maximum of coloration and aroma. Alcoholic and malolactic fermentations are then carried out in temperature controlled concrete vats.
