|Availability:||In stock (3)|
Château de Panigon is a beautiful estate of 200 acres located in the northern Médoc with about 60 acres planted to vines. Its history goes back to before the French Revolution and was mentioned back in 1850 in the first edition of Bordeaux and its Wines. In the next edition in 1868, Chateau de Panigon was classified as a Cru Bourgeois. So, there is some serious bonified history to the estate.
Situated in the village of Civrac - en - Médoc, about an hour from Bordeaux, the vineyard benefits from the oceanic influence of the nearby Atlantic Ocean as well as their proximity to the Gironde estuary, which together create an ideal climatic condition for the optimum development and maturity of the grapes. Composed of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 50% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot, the vineyard flourishes on gravelly hillocks on some of the best terroirs in the Médoc.
Since 2006, the daughter and the son-in-law of the owners, Corinne Leveilley Dadda and Georges Dadda, have taken over the management of the Château, determined to produce red wines that seriously deliver. In 2016, Château de Panigon obtained the HVE - High Environmental Value- label, a guarantee of quality and respect for the environment.
