Created in 1925 by Victor Ponty himself, Chateau du Pavillon is today a symbol of Canon Fronsac wines. This small property, dating from the 18th century, gets its name from the small “Pavillon”, a guard house located at the entrance of the estate. This vineyard has belonged to the Ponty family for almost 100 years, and is also where
the family chateau is located.
The south exposure of the vineyard gives the grapes plenty of sun, allowing them to always mature to perfec- tion. The Château du Pavillon wines show roundness and balance, a lot of elegance and are best appreciated with meats.
