Jacques and Sylvie Guinaudeau manage the vineyards of Grand Village together with the team also responsible for the vineyards at Château Lafleur (Pomerol). Their son Baptiste and his wife Julie are now also contributing to the realization of the goal of Grand Village: to slowly transform an old factory into a top winery. The team brings the knowledge and skills of one of the best châteaux in Pomerol. So it's no surprise that Grand Village's wines are spectacular.

After the manual picking, with strict selection, the vinification takes place in the traditional way. First the grapes undergo a short soaking time followed by the traditional alcoholic fermentation of 3 weeks in oak casks. The grapes are then pressed and the young wine is transferred to mostly new oak barriques for malolactic fermentation and maturation for a period of 10 months, after which the wine is bottled unfiltered.

The Grand Village Bordeaux Superior is a blend of Merlot & Cabernet Franc. The wine has a deep ruby red color. In the nose we smell notes of blackcurrant and plum, a hint of roasted red pepper, juniper berry and bay leaf. Ripe small red black fruit and dried herbs in the palate, accompanied in the aftertaste by clearly present but ripe tannins. Very nice elegant pure blackberry fruit with fine acidity on the finish. In the vinification of Lafleur and Grand Village, Guinaudeau is advised by the former cellar master of Petrus, Jean Claude Berrouet. Winemaking is also the responsibility of the Château Lafleur team. Keep an eye on these wines - this is an unrivaled value for money and let's hope they don't fall behind Lafleur in terms of price.
