Château de Valois
Helped by his perfectly located plots on the southern slopes of the plateau of the appellation, Frédéric Leydet produces a truly great Pomerol.
Château de Valois was part of Chateau Figeac in the 1800. It has been bought by Frederic Leydet's ancestors after the split, in 1862. Since then, the Château is offering a rare example of a family-run estate, seeking to ensure the wine is representative of the terroirs of the area. Frederic, with the help of his father Bernard, practices sustainable farming and organic guidelines as much as possible to avoid in general chemical treatments. He never forgets that when it comes down to it, wine is made from grapes and all the rest is just there to enhance this basic ingredient.
