At the Château des Annereaux, Benjamin Hessel works his vineyard with respect for the local fauna and flora. He produces racy wines, with good ageing potential, in organic agriculture. Agro-ecology is becoming more and more important on the property: more than 2 km of hedges, 100 fruit trees, 5 isolated trees, flowery fallows, 3 beehives.
Château des Annereaux, in the Lalande de Pomerol appellation, has been a family estate since 1390. The 25 hectares located on beautiful gravelly-sandy terroirs on Bordeaux's right bank have been farmed organically since 2010. In 2016, Benjamin Hessel took over the estate on his own, with a view to continuity and excellence, while preserving the environment by practicing agro-ecology. Château des Annereaux owes its first hours of glory to a woman. At the end of the 19th century, Caroline Ponsot, the young widow who inherited the estate, was recognized by her peers as "the Gironde emblem of a woman's victory over the pest". She was the one who carried out in-depth research into the fight against phylloxera, on her own vineyard, and who was crowned with success for her work on American rootstocks and her numerous books on the subject. Thanks to her determination, Château des Annereaux became the example to follow, and was hailed by the eminent specialists of the day.
I'm attached to the roots of the past, but with an eye to the future, in line with the generations that preceded me. I'm exploring new interpretations of terroir, focusing on finesse, elegance and drinkability, with reduced ageing and only 25% new wood, perfectly integrated and controlled. A wine balanced between a complex, slightly spicy nose, crisp fruit and a velvety mouthfeel, with melted tannins. In 2018, our work was rewarded with the listing of our cuvées by the Cave de l'Élysée.
