Château Le Bon Pasteur

Château Le Bon Pasteur

A lovely reference nestled in the heart of the Pomerol appellation, Château Le Bon Pasteur was founded in the 1920s by the grandparents of the famous oenologist-consultant Michel Rolland. The latter took over in 1979, introducing numerous technical innovations that quickly contributed to its international renown. 

Accompanied by his wife Dany, they have never ceased to magnify the grandeur of the terroir of their Domaine, offering complex, richly elegant crus. Today, the team is led by Benoît Prévot, with Michel Rolland as consultant.

The Château Le Bon Pasteur is planted on 6.6 hectares of gravel-clay and gravel-sand soils. The grape varieties are 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet franc. The wines are aged for 15 to 18 months in French oak barrels, 80% of which are new.

L'Etoile de Bon Pasteur is the Second wine produced on the estate.

The Château Le Bon Pasteur produces wines that are almost exemplary, so refined, velvety and deep are they, developing sublime aromas of evolution after a few years of cellaring.

Description Château le Bon Pasteur 2022.

Every vintage is a new story.

This year 2022 will be remembered as a year punctuated by strategic choices and adaptations in the face of extreme weather conditions!

A historically early vintage.

We'll have to remember the incredible resilience of vines and men.

The winter of 2022 proved Sec, with 513mm of rain compared with 788 on average. The beginning of April is again marked by a cold snap. May began very mildly (+2.5°C above seasonal normals). The first Merlot flowers appeared on May 17. Flowering was explosive and uniform. Veraison began in mid-July, in a hot, dry climate.

The bright summer of Sec anchored the 2022 vintage in its typicality.

The harvest took place in ideal conditions from September 9 to 27, under a magnificent Indian summer.

The grapes were of exceptional quality, with anthological phenolic richness! Vinification was gentle. The key to this vintage's success is the goldsmith's work orchestrated by the entire team at Château Le Bon Pasteur.

Benoit Prévôt, Director of Oenology:

"An intense, deep color with purple highlights. The fine, complex nose reveals notes of violets and licorice, black fruit aromas of remarkable maturity. On the palate, the attack is both suave and fleshy, revealing tannins of great precision, elegant and particularly silky and fresh. The finish is of great purity, with an inimitable length that expresses all the nobility of Château Le Bon Pasteur."
