La Cabanne

Marie-Pierre and François Estager
Owned by the Jean-Pierre Estager family, Château La Cabanne is located in the heart of Pomerol.

Although vines have been grown here since Gallo-Roman times, the name goes back to the 14th century, when serfs who worked in the vineyard lived in cabins (“cabanes”).

A dynamic estate, Château La Cabanne regularly updates their winemaking equipment (which was totally replaced in 2011 after a fire destroyed the vat room), while gradually restructuring the vineyard.

Viticultural practices combine both a traditional and modern approach, and are done in keeping with the appellation’s highest standards.

Château La Cabanne is a well-balanced wine, with an intense, complex nose showing hints of blackberry jam, raspberry and toasted bread. Silky tannin on the palate provides volume and density, and there is a long aftertaste. Undergoing rigorous blending, La Cabanne ranks among the greatest Pomerols.

Château La Cabanne also produces a second wine,
Domaine de Compostelle, mainly from young vines.
