Located on Pomerol's western border near the hamlet of René, Château des Pèlerins is one of the appellation's typical small estates, and a model of local winegrowing traditions. Pelerins means pilgrims: in reference to its location on the pilgrims route, and as shown on the label.
This wine is a deep, bright, ruby colour, with straightforward, fairly intense fruity and floral bouquet reminiscent of vanilla and chocolate.
The wine starts off quite soft and develops beautifully on the palate. A round, fruity wine that goes into a fine, long, vanilla, aftertaste.
