Fill out your info and we will notify you when the 2015 Pomerol Château Gombaude-Guillot is back in stock or when a new vintage becomes available.


Since taking over management of the domaine in 2010, Olivier Techer has contributed his  energetic, youthful outlook to this already ground-breaking estate. He has built on the pioneering work  of his mother, Claire Laval, who was the first in Pomerol to farm organically. Olivier has cemented this commitment to sustainability by acquiring bio-dynamic certification, and has experimented in depth with the  nuances of sulfur, aging vessels, and blending.
          The châteaux’s grand vin, however, maintains a flavor profile as classic as can be, with a rich, velvety texture and vivid fruit suggesting blackberry and plum. The incredible depth, power, and fine but grippingly youthful tannins are text-book Pomerol, in the style upon which this great appellation built its reputation. Old vintages of Gombaude-Guillot dazzle with aromas of truffle, cocoa, and turned earth, and this 2015 is perfect for the cellar. Already approachable, it will improve for twenty years or more.

About Bordeaux

map of Bordeaux

Often considered the wine capital of the world, Bordeaux and its wines have captured the minds, hearts, and wallets of wine drinkers for centuries. For many, the wines provide an inalienable benchmark against which all other wines are measured.

Bordeaux is divided into three winegrowing regions with the city that gives the region its name in the near geographical center. The “right bank,” or the area located east of the Dordogne River, produces wines that are predominantly Merlot with small amounts of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. The “left bank” is located to the west of the Garonne River and produces wines dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, with Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot.

The third region, Entre-Deux-Mers, lies between both rivers and produces white wines from Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon, and Muscadelle. Though technically in the left bank, it is worth noting the appellation of Sauternes, which produces arguably the world’s most famous sweet wines from Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon, and Muscadelle as well.

Though many top Bordeaux wines are sold en primeur (in advance of their bottling) and often through a middleman known as a negoçiant, Kermit has always preferred to purchase directly from the winemaker. For more than three decades he has sought out small producers, who make classic Bordeaux wines and are willing to play outside the negoçiant system. This ethic has led to longstanding relationships, excellent prices, and perhaps most important—wines of great value and longevity.

I want you to realize once and for all: Even the winemaker does not know what aging is going to do to a new vintage; Robert Parker does not know; I do not know. We all make educated (hopefully) guesses about what the future will bring, but guesses they are. And one of the pleasures of a wine cellar is the opportunity it provides for you to witness the evolution of your various selections. Living wines have ups and downs just as people do, periods of glory and dog days, too. If wine did not remind me of real life, I would not care about it so much.
