Pomerol is a small wine-growing region located on the right bank of the Bordeaux wine region in southwestern France. The region is known for producing some of the world's most luxurious and expensive wines, particularly red wines made predominantly from the Merlot grape variety.

Pomerol is only about 3.5 square miles (9 square kilometers) in size, making it one of the smallest wine appellations in the Bordeaux region. However, despite its small size, Pomerol is home to several famous and highly regarded chateaux, including Petrus, Le Pin, and Vieux Chateau Certan.

The soil in Pomerol is characterized by a mixture of clay, gravel, and sand, which is ideal for growing the Merlot grape. Other grape varieties, including Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, are also grown in the region, but they typically make up a smaller proportion of the wine blends.

Pomerol wines are known for their rich, full-bodied flavors, with notes of dark fruit, spice, and chocolate. They are often described as having a velvety texture, with soft tannins and a long finish. Pomerol wines are considered some of the most prestigious and sought-after wines in the world, and they can command extremely high prices at auction and in the marketplace.
