User Reviews for Château Tour Maillet Pomerol

Winemaker's Notes:

Vieux Maillet is small even by Pomerol standards, with a mere 2.6 hectares of vineyards compared to the regional average holding of 6 or 7 hectares. The terroir of Pomerol is singular: made up of clay soils, layers of sand, and traces of iron nuggets that give its terroir a unique character. This heavier, colder soil is particularly suited to earlier ripening Merlot, giving its wines more depth and concentration than usually encountered in this grape variety. Cabernet Franc does well on the better-drained plots while Cabernet Sauvignon has difficulty ripening correctly on these soils and thus is not encountered much in Pomerol.
