A desire to write a new page in the history of Chateau Pontet Barrail , to tell the story of this wine newly elected to the rank of Cru Bourgeois. To shake off the dust from this name so closely linked to our family history and make of it a true reference of quality, such are my objectives. The competence and knowledge of my team, which has proved itself with Chateau Labadie and the “Coupe des Crus Bourgeois” are the means at my disposal. Jérôme Bibey.
