The vineyards of Sainte-Colombe can be traced back to Gallo-Roman times.

Pin It

The vineyards of Sainte-Colombe can be traced back to Gallo-Roman times.

The first written references to the vineyard at "Picoron" date back to the early 18th century. In 2015, the château was bought by Glenda and Franck Kalyk, an Australian couple who are passionate about wine and France.

The 2015 vintage enjoyed a warm, dry summer, providing excellent ripening conditions for the grapes. The autumn period was also dry and quite hot.

The Château Picoron vineyard stands on calcareous clay soil in the commune of Sainte-Colombe. It uses sustainable vineyard management practices to preserve ecosystem integrity.

Château Tasting   Purple colour with a hint of ruby. Nose still very young with aromas of fresh, lightly stewed fruit. Rich aromas of aniseed and chocolate vanilla. A full, fleshy attack on the palate, followed by velvety tannins that are very rich and almost creamy. Flavours of stewed fruit and Madagascan cocoa beans. Tannins still closed although fresh. Ready to drink with grilled meat for those who like very young wines, or leave to mature for another 5 to 10 years.

91 Shows some bold and quite chewy tannin, not to mention impressive density, and yet this still holds balance. Lots of dark chocolate, mulberries, and plum liqueur. Best from 2022.
