Château PLINCE is one of those Pomerol properties where modernity rhymes with tradition. This domain, in the family for more than a century, has kept its authenticity while taking advantage of technical progress in a constant concern for quality.
Château PLINCE is today known and recognized by wine lovers and professionals as a high quality Pomerol. For proof, he obtained in 1995 the bronze medal at the agricultural competition of Paris then in 2000 won the gold medal for a wine presented by all as an exceptional vintage.
Through this site, Michel MOREAU, current manager of the estate, wanted us to discover the "design" of this wine, from the presentation of the vineyard until the bottling, through the crucial period of the harvest.
Located at the east exit of LIBOURNE, Château Plince's property is close to Château Nénin and opposite Château La Pointe. Its total area is greater than 10 hectares of which 8.66 hectares are planted with vines.
The vineyard is in one piece and is located on a dark sand floor largely provided with "iron grime" which contributes to the richness of the wine.
Current Grape Varieties: 72% Merlots, 23% Cabernets Francs (or Bouchets), 5% Cabernets Sauvignon.
The castle Plince produces about 50000 bottles a year.
A large part of the production is sold to traders, the rest is marketed directly by the S.C.E.V (Civil Society of Wine Exploitation) MOREAU
