Located in the north-west of the Lalande de Pomerol appellation, Château Haut-Goujon’s terroir consists of gravelly-sandy soil on the western side, and clay and gravel soil to the east. The subsoil has an unusual characteristic: consisting of clay and gravel from ancient alluvial deposits, it contains traces of iron oxide. It is the presence of the latter that gives the property’s wines their unique character.
Château Haut-Goujon has 18 hectares of vines under three appellations:
Lalande de Pomerol (8 ha 55) – Montagne Saint Emilion (8 ha) – Bordeaux (1 ha 80).
Merlot is the star grape variety here, accounting for 75% of the vines.
14% Cabernet Sauvignon – 5% Cabernet Franc – 5% Malbec – 1% Petit Verdot.
All these varieties are included in a blend, with a view to creating elegant, wines with good complexity. The proximity of the plots results in a certain homogeneity of the terroirs which is reflected in the wines.
After maceration for 25 days, the solids are placed in a vertical press to obtain high quality press wines.
Malolactic fermentation takes place in barrels for certain wines, enabling them to acquire further complexity and personality.
