Chateau Tournefeuille

Appellation : Lalande-de-Pomerol

Château Tournefeuille is situated in the commune of Néac within the sound of the church bells. Its vines cover 18 hectares forming one entity around the château, fermenting room and wine store. But what makes this estate special is the magnificent slopes on which it is perched, affording a wonderful view. Lit up in the afternoon by the hot sun of the south and bathed in orange light at sunset, it dominates the Barbanne valley. This river gently meanders between Pomerol and Néac, forming the hold border separating the former English and French seigneuries. Today it separates the seigneuries of Pomerol and Lalande, offering a splendid view of the Pétrus plateau. If history and landscape give this wine a definite attraction, the land is also part of the wine. Château Tournefeuille extends a unit of 17 hectares of vines, gathered around the chateau and its cellar.

The owner's pitch.

“Tout est équilibre dans le fruit de la patience. Voilà une belle maxime pour un beau terroir, celui de Tournefeuille. Ce beau terroir il faut le laisser s’exprimer dans sa diversité. Lui associer les bon cépages, le laisser parler. C’est là notre devoir. Permettre la meilleure expression sans forcer, dans la patience. Tout en respectant les éléments naturels environnants. Chaque parcelle sera vinifiée, élevée dans le respect de son caractère. Nous recherchons la finesse et la fraîcheur.”
Émeric Petit
