The 6.9 hectare, Right Bank vineyard of Chateau Gombaude Guillot is planted to 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc . Although there are some Malbec vines that remain planted in the vineyard. The terroir is gravel, sand and clay soil. They have good neighbors as they are situated not far from Chateau Trotanoy , Chateau Clinet and Chateau L’Eglise Clinet. The vineyard is planted to a vine density of 6,500 vines per hectare. The vines are old, with an average age of 40 years. However, they have parcels with vines that are more than 60 years of age. Chateau Gombaude Guillot was one of the first chateaux in Pomerol to embrace organic, self-sustainable farming. This began to take place with the 1992 vintage, under the direction of Claire Laval. By the 2000 vintage, they moved to 100% organic farming earning their certification from Ecocert. By 2005, the chateau had transitioned to 100% biodynamic farming techniques.
