Vieux Château Boeno
Appellation : Pomerol
For five generations, the Ollet-Fourreau family has been running different wine estates in the Bordeaux region, and more precisely, since the 1930s, on the right bank of the Garonne in the Lalande de Pomerol and Pomerol appellations.
Over time, the estate has been able to acquire new technologies (sorting table, temperature control, new barrels, etc.), thus enabling it to meet the various quality requirements in terms of administration, sales and staff.

The Pomerol appellation
The Pomerol appellation is a small appellation which extends over the commune of the same name, to the east of the Isle river and over part of the communes of Libourne and Lalande-de-Pomerol. Covering an area of 800 hectares, it produces 35,000 hectolitres of red wine only. The soils are gravelly and sandy on the high terrace to the east of the appellation and sandy, siliceous clay and gravelly clay on the middle terraces to the east of the vineyard. The main grape varieties of Pomerol wines are Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec (known as Pressac in the region) and Petit Verdot. The wines can be kept for 5 to 10 years or even longer for the most prestigious vintages.
