The vineyard of Brulhois is one of the South-West appellations. Between Gascony and Quercy, it stretches on about 200 ha of pebbly terraces and hills, all along the Garonne.

At the end of 2003, Guillaume Combes, a young agricultural engineer and oenologist, and his wife, Amanda, both passionately fond of wine, took back a vineyard of 13 ha situated on the commune of Saint Cirice, very near the famous little village on Auvillar, renown as one of the most beautiful in France.
This vineyard was planted in 1985 on a gravelly and clayey calcareous soil. Its South-West exposure is the best one for wine. Guillaume passionately cultivated his vineyard with a great respect fo the fruit to produce in 2004 the first vintages from the Domaine du Pountet (L’Horloge “The Clock”, Eclats de Fruit “Fruit Burst” and Plaisir d’Eté “Summer Pleasure”).

On the range of the ancient vines, the Domaine du Pountet prioritizes Tannat and Malbec, associated to Merlot and Cabernet Franc. A particular care is taken to the management of the vineyard. The density of plantation is high, between 4000 and 5000 plants per hectare. The vine-plant is pruned in traditional simple guyot.
The soil is worked in the middle of rows, the vineyard in Saint Cirice (Brulhois, red grapes) is led in organic farming and is certified and treatments in Eauze (Gers) are made accordingly to sustainable agriculture (for the white grapes). Summer green harvests are made before grapes come to maturity. A leaf thining is then made by hand.

After harvests the winemaker demonstrates his skills. Once fermentation is over, the nectar is regularly tasted in order to select the best tanks. After that, the essential step for making the Domaine du Pountet wines comes : the blending. At this precise and unique moment, the oenologist plays the alchemist.
