En Primeur Château Bourgneuf will be available for delivery or storage once it lands in the UK, usually two years following the en primeur offer.
Ch. Bourgneuf is an excellent family-owned estate in the heart of Pomerol, with vines across some of the most prestigious terroirs of the appellation. The Vayron family have run Ch. Bourgneuf since 1821 and since 2008 the wines have been made by Frédérique Vayron, the daughter of the current owners Xavier and Dominique. The 9ha vineyard here is located across both gravel and clay soils, with 90% planted to Merlot and the remaining 10% to Cabernet Franc. Nestling against the vineayrds of Ch. Trotanoy and with L’Eglise Clinet located just to the northeast, the wines produced here are classic and fine examples of Pomerol. The wines here are relatively approachable and rounded in youth, but with enough concentration and complexity to reward cellaring for a decade or more. There are old vines here, with an average age of 40 years old and the vineyard management is environmentally-focussed (the estate was awarded HVE3 environmental certification in 2019). Ageing takes place in oak barrels, 35% of which are new.
En Primeur pricing is per case as specified and excludes UK duty and VAT, which will be charged at the prevailing rate when the wine is released from bond for delivery. Bonded storage is available. Onward delivery or transfer is not included and can be quoted for on request. Free delivery on orders over £100 does not apply to bonded or en primeur wines.
