Château Gobert is a 16 hectare property located in the village of Vérac, just outside the Fronsac appellation on the right-bank of Bordeaux. It is owned by Guy Michoux, whose great-grandparents founded the estate in 1920. The vineyard’s clay-sand-limestone soil is ideal for ripening the Merlot grape, which is the principal variety in Château Gobert. The average age of the vines is 40 years.
Farming practices: sustainable, moving toward organic. The vines are trained high to enhance ripening and prevent diseases, while grass is planted between the rows. The fruit is carefully sorted after harvest.
