This is a very classic Bordeaux right bank pure Merlot. The wine shows a brilliant ruby color, the nose is complex with intense aromas of violet, blackberry, black cherry, cedar wood and tobacco. On the palate, the wine is well structured with a good balance between the velvety soft tannins, ripe berry flavors and woody flavors (cedar wood). Slight smokiness due to the 12 months the wine has aged in barrels. The aftertaste is long and pleasant.
Château du Pavillon
Dating from the 19th century, Chateau du Pavillon is historically the first vineyard of the Ponty Family, a symbol of Canon Fronsac wines and a symbol of our family. As the first wine we created, it perfectly represents our style: an elegant wine, rich and complex, with subtle oaky notes, a lot of fruit and freshness, and perfect balance. It also represents our roots, where generations of our family grew up, got married, learned their craft. It is our heart in a bottle.
When to drink it?
It is this perfectly balanced wine that makes everyone happy: wine lovers and beginners alike, and whatever their favorite tipple is. It is a perfect Sunday lunch wine: when you need something that matches the food you spent so much time cooking, but you’re also looking for great value. In terms of food pairing, it will go perfectly with a rack of lamb, or anything with a pepper sauce.
