Château de Chambrun
Lalande de Pomerol



This property belonged to Jean-Philippe Janoueix until 2007, then to Silvio Denz until 2015. It is now the spearhead of our vineyards and represents the new generation of wine from our estates. As of 2016, this wine will benefit from a completely adapted viticultural direction. We have preserved the original wine label with the Templars’ Cross, the historic symbol of the Pomerol and Lalande-de-Pomerol appellations.
