95 points Decanter
"A simply great nose of mint, dark fruit and truffles is backed up by a multi-faceted palate showing floral and meaty tinges to the rounded, sleek cherries and raspberries on chalky tannins."
Vinous Reverie Notes
Chateau de Panigon benefits from one side of the Atlantic Ocean influences, the other of the presence of the Gironde estuary, providing favorable weather conditions for the development of grape varieties and a maturity of grapes. The vineyard grows on gravel mounds worthy of the best soils of the Medoc. Composed of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 50% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot, the vineyard flourish hillocks on some of the best terroirs in the Medoc. Tasting Notes: The nose first unfolds notes of black fruits: blackberry, blackcurrant, and then spreads toasted notes. The mouth is well balanced, long and round. It reveals melted tannins and opens on a pleasant fruity finish.
