Château Grand Renouil produced its first wines in the 18th century. Today, it is still considered one of the best wines in Canon Fronsac, and is regularly honored by the famous wine publications. Its very old vines allow the Ponty family to produce the most amazing wine, and achieve a stable quality every year, even in difficult climate.
The Chateau Grand Renouil wine is one of the most con- centrated and complex. Like all great wines, it is best ap- preciated at least 5 years after the harvest, and can be aged up to 30 years. Reserved for the most special occasions, Chateau Grand Renouil was served for the French Presi- dent’s reception dinners at the Elysee.
