Château Dompierre

Haut-Medoc, Bordeaux • France

Libourne native Michel Aroldi’s first love is Cabernet Sauvignon. After a successful run owning and overseeing all operations at Château Plain Point in Fronsac, he moved across the estuary and found this otherwise run-down estate with a fully restored dwelling and 11 hectares of vines and went to work.

Michel has firm ideas about what he wants from a wine, and they are based on one essential idea—the quality and ripeness of its fruit flavors. To achieve his ideal wine, he works with a number of guiding principles: only organic practices, low pruning, hand picking, fermentation and aging in foudres, no fining or filtration, and minimal sulfur levels. Classic old-school Médoc.
