Le Bon Pasteur
This small estate, acquired circa 1920, gradually expanded and attained its present size in 1955.
It goes without saying that Le Bon Pasteur benefits from the winemaking philosophy and experience of the well-known oenologists Dany and Michel Rolland, who created a model vineyard and a wine of great class. The grapes in each plot are picked at ideal ripeness and carefully sorted. They are then separately fermented in new barrels or small temperature-controlled vats (15-70 hl). Pressing is gentle and winemaking as non-interventionist as possible in order to retain the specific characteristics of each plot and grape variety throughout barrel ageing and until the final blend is made.
The diversity of plots explains the complexity and originality of this wine from beginning to end. Furthermore it is not fined before bottling. Thanks to the experience of the famous oenologists Dany and Michel Rolland, Château Le Bon Pasteur is one of the gems of Pomerol, a fine wine recognized by critics around the world.
Château Le Bon Pasteur has belonged to the Goldin group since June 2013. It is managed by Benoît Prévot, although the existing winemaking team was maintained to benefit from, and perpetuate their expertise.
