Château Les Cruzelles: Vineyards

Take a walk around the back of Château L’Église-Clinet and you can just make out Château Les Cruzelles in the distance, although you need to know where to look. Just before you the ground slopes gently away, before dipping down more steeply towards Château Rouget, and then disappearing from view. There is a line of trees here which mark the course of the Barbanne, the river that marks the end of the Pomerol appellation. Beyond that the land climbs again; this is Lalande-de-Pomerol.

In the far distance a line of plane trees mark the route of the D1089, the road which speeds in a north-easterly direction out of Libourne, dividing the plateau from the sandy plain in Pomerol, and neatly bisecting the Lalande-de-Pomerol appellation. Halfway along on the far side (this is easier if the trees are not in leaf) sits the rather attractive château (pictured above, although I was obviously standing a lot closer), and alongside that there is a giant cedar.
