Château La Violette

Catherine Péré-Vergé bought this minute estate from Frederic Dumas in 2005. The domaine’s fortune changed almost immediately. A virtual unknown has become one of the most desirable wines in Pomerol.

Situated close to Trotanoy and le Pin, the tiny 1.6 hectare slice of Pomerol is ably managed by Catherine Péré-Vergé’s charming son, Henri Parent. The vineyards have been extensively replanted and are now 100% Merlot. There are many 60 year old plus vines planted at a density of 5500 feet per hectare, with new root-stock planted at a density of 9900 vines per hectare.

Henri, who also managed sister property, Le Gay gave us a tour of their futuristic new winery in 2015. 2014 was the first vintage to be micro-vinified in this very impressive new cellar. This allows wine-maker, Marcello Pelleriti and consultant oenologist Michel Rolland far more precision during wine-making. Production, as you would imagine is very small; typically 250 cases a year. As the new plantings come to fruition this will steadily increase, but for now, this coveted label (particularly after Robert Parker’s eulogy for the 2010), is one of the most difficult wines to find in Bordeaux.
