Fragments of pottery dating back to the 3rd Century were discovered on the site of Château Mazeyres, attesting to a Gallo-Roman heritage. The town archives show that viticulture started in Pomerol in the 14th Century. Caisse de Retraite de la Société Générale (a pension fund) took over Château Mazeyres in 1988 and brought in Alain Moueix, a 4th generation œnologue from a family of winemakers and négociants from Libourne. Since 2012, the estate has been certified biodynamic, and the recent acquisition of 4 supplemental hectares at the heart of the Pomerol appellation brings the total surface area that is certified to 25.5 hectares. Le Seuil de Mazeyres is the Second Wine of Chateau Mazeyres.
Le Seuil de Mazeyres 2012, Pomerol
Beautifully balanced, dominated by forest fruits, tobacco and cherries, smoothn and lively with structured tannins marked by an almost silky grain, and on the finish a discreet and singular smoky note.
