Chateau Perron Lalande de Pomerol
Having been in the Massonie family for three generations, Perron is now the responsibility of Bertrand Massonie, whose drive, passion, technical skill and respect for the property’s exceptional terroir have contributed massively to its recent renaissance. One of the top wines in the appellation and a rising star of the Right Bank.
Rich, powerful and many-layered nose of red fruits, dark spice, fresh oak and cocoa. Supple, velvety palate with fine, crisply elegant tannins. Fresh lingering finish with menthol flavours. A charming, easy-to-drink wine which will go down well with any fine food.

Situated on the edge of the village of Lalande de Pomerol, Château Perron dates back to 1647 and is one of
the oldest properties in the appellation. It has belonged to the Massonie family for three generations and was,
until the late 1990s, run by, the well-known and well respected, Michel Massonie, who not only founded the
wine brotherhood of Lalande de Pomerol and was its first Bailli but who is also the current President of the
Grand Conseil des Vins de Bordeaux. In 1999, Michel Massonie’s son, Bertrand, took over the day-to-day
management of the property.
This small vineyard is tended like a garden with the utmost respect for the environment using sustainable
viticultural methods, and has HVE (high environmental value) and ISO 140001 certification. The soil is tilled or
left with grass cover; desuckering is done in April/May, leaf-stripping (on the easterly side) and crop-thinning
in June/July. Integrated pest management is applied. The grapes are harvested by hand and by machine,
then sorted manually on a sorting table at reception. Alcoholic fermentation takes place in small concrete vats,
the grapes from each parcel being kept separate. After fermentation, the grapes are left in the vats on the
skins for 3-5 weeks. After de-vatting, the wines are aged for 12-18 months in French oak barrels made by the
best coopers and regularly renewed.
