Enclos de Viaud is located on the Lalande bank of the Barbanne river in the lieu-dit Viaud et Maréchaude. It consists of 2,48 hectares split into two parcels. Merlot is the dominant variety, and the vineyard and soils are managed plot by plot.
Winemaker Jerome Aguirre uses a blend of oak, cement and stainless steel tanks for vinification and ageing in order to bring the best of each element to the wine. Situated on the banks of the Barbanne river which separates Lalande from Pomerol, this is some of the finest terroir and one of the best performing properties in the appellation.
Deep purple colour. Aromas and flavors of melted toffee, dark berry compote, and spice with a bright, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a subtle, long plum, nuts, and leafy earth finish with earthy, fine tannins and moderate oak. A supple, sensual red Bordeaux with instant appeal and a long path of pleasure ahead.

The investment of Peter Kwok (Bellefont Belcier) alongside the winemaking team of Jerome Aguirre and Michel Rolland make this one of the leading wines in the appellation. On top of that, vinification is without sulphur to augment the fruit expression. 2016 vintage (92/100 IWR)
