Wine of Pomerol appellation
Pomerol, whose history of viticulture dates back to Roman times, is located about 50 kilometers (31 miles) east of the city of Bordeaux, near Libourne, on the right bank of the Dordogne. This appellation, which is rather small for Bordeaux, covers about 800 hectares (1,977 acres) of vineyards that produce about 31,000 hectoliters of wine annually. 

The vineyards of Pomerol sit on an unusual terroir: a surface of sandy gravel over a clayey bedrock mixed with iron oxide (known as crasse de fer) that are largely responsible for the unique character of the wines grown here. The geology here also favors runoff throughout the year and allows the vines to flourish. 

Pomerol is a red wine made mainly from Merlot, which is often blended with Cabernet Franc and, less frequently, with Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec. Its robe is a dense, deep ruby or dark red with garnet highlights. The nose features red fruit, violet, truffle, and spices. The supple, fleshy palate marries finesse and intensity over a powerful tannic backdrop. Pomerol may be drunk young, but with twenty years of aging or more it develops great complexity and finesse. Pomerol boasts the region's most famous estates, such as Pétrus, Château La Conseillante, Château La Violette, Château Lafleur, Château Clinet, Château Beauregard, and Château Le Gay.
