Château de la Commanderie

Château de la Commanderie, situated next to the church, was one of the 'commanderies' set up by the Knights of St John of Jerusalem to protect the pilgrims on their travels to Santiago de Compostela in north-west Spain.

Owned by the Lafon family, the 26 hectare vineyard is planted with 75% merlot, 20% cabernet franc and 5% cabernet sauvignon, with vines averaging 25 years of age. Harvesting is by machine and three weeks' vatting is followed by ageing in barrel and vat. It is a property we have followed over many vintages, typically with an aroma of sloes and a sweetly fruity palate.

Until recently it was the only Lalande-de-Pomerol in the JP Moueix portfolio, a fact which recommends the property highly, and under their guidance this 26 hectare estate has been getting better and better.
