A world-class Médoc to discover.
Situated in the heart of Paulliac just south of the Mouton Rothschild estate, Château Pontet-Canet is a name worth noting. Though it may not be as talked about as its popular neighbour, the age-old estate’s ruby-red cabernet blend is every bit as appealing as the next Médoc.

An uniquely located vineyard between the appellations of Haut-Medoc and Pauillac.
Chateau Peyrabon is a small and established property in Haut Medoc originally bought by the Babeau family when they expanded the vineyard from neigbouring Chateau Liversan. In 1998, Peyrabon was purchased by Millesima’s MD Patrick Bernard who has since modernized the property. Chateau Peyrabon produces three wines – Chateau la Fleur de Peyrabon AOC Pauillac, Cru Bourgeois (one of only 7 Crus Bourgeois wines in Pauillac), Château Peyrabon AOC Haut Médoc, Cru Bourgeois and Château Pierbone AOC Haut Médoc (second wine of Château Peyrabon).
