Château de Chambrun
"Le Bourg"
Lalande de Pomerol



Located on the border of the Pomerol and Lalande-de-Pomerol appellations, “Le Bourg” draws its origin from the plot of the same name. Situated on a small hill of clay and gravel, 500 meters away from Chateau Pètrus, this plot is certainly the most qualitative of the estate. For these grapes we employ the highest quality of vinification combining new oak barrels and extended ageing. The production of this exclusive cuvée is very limited as our volumes are very low.
