CHÂTEAU GRANDS SILLONS GABACHOT

The classic luxury


The property has been bought by Pierre Janoueix, Pierre-Emmanuel's father, in 1964 and has been a reference of Pomerol for several decades. Succeeding his father, Pierre-Emmanuel Janoueix took over the vineyard in 2000, with for ambition to perpetuate the quality.


Elaborated in the wine cellar of Château Pierhem, it benefits from the same quality of wine-making and ageing : a totally renovated building, in the tradition of Pomerol, and equipped in thermoregulation.

To optimize the quality of the harvests, green grape harvests and double-thinning-out of leaves are realized. Once manually harvested, grapes are again selected on table.


Wines of the Château grands Sillons Gabachot is a little more supple than Château Pierhem thanks to a less wooded ageing, and consequently, they can be taste earlier.

With its deep purplecolour and its subtle notes of red berries, this wine, long on the palate, elegant and velvety, express all the nobility of Pomerol.

Consumption                        To drink after 3 years. Ageing potential of 12 years. Serve at 16°C (60.8°F).
