Château du Pavillon


The Château du Pavillon wine best represents wines from Canon Fronsac. This small 4-hectares property has belonged to the Ponty family for almost 100 years, and is also the family home. Today, Michel Ponty and his family still live there, in the middle of this vineyard.

Using 100% Merlot, Canon Fronsac’s favorite variety, the south exposure of the vineyard allows for plenty of sun, allowing the grapes to always mature to perfection. As a result, the Château du Pavillon wines show roundness and balance with soft tannins and can be easily appreciated on many different occasions and types of food.

TASTING NOTES:

Château du Pavillon shows a beautiful color with purple glints, a slightly oaked nose and aromas of red fruits, spices and leather.

On the palate the wine is round and full with spices, an excellent texture and fine smooth tannins.

    Wine review by sfquixote


  • A ridiculous number of trigger pullworthies in this new offering, many in their absolute drinking prime. Wish the shop was just down the street from me, rather than the ones that are. But then I'd have to live in NYC.  ;-(I love it when a guy drops 100 cases on a shop, just to 'make some space" in his cellar. Wonder what's going to be filling th... Read More

The real question is how to bluff your way to the blue chip crowd and how to look good doing it. The answer breathes with more sense than dollars and with the admirable confidence exuded by those who know a good deal when they smell it. Of c... Read More

  • Pavillon Rouge du Château Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend Margaux 1966

    Snoothrank:

    This is the last of my dad's case, purchased in 1968. We were all amazed at how easily the cork came out, and how instantly perfumed the wine appeared. After decanting, beautiful aromas of mushrooms, pine, moss and violets shined. There was a hint of blackberry on the palate, but it fell very short. Most of the fruit was gone. Like watching a si...

  • Hey everyone, what's the buzz in the US right now about buying Bordeaux 2009 En Primeur?I have never known a vintage to be so 'talked-up' by the press.  Investors are hanging on to Parker's index fingers waiting with drooling tongues and wagging tails for it to spout forth its Midas touch.  This is THE vintage of the last 100 years folks.  Broke...
