2011 Château PAVILLON. Canon-Fronsac, Bordeaux
Alcohol Percentage: 13.5%
Area: Canon-Fronsac is a lesser-known region on the "right bank" of the river, close to the more famous appellations of Pomerol and St Emilion. It tends to produce rich but fairly robust/rustic reds
Grape Variety: 100% Merlot, matured for a year in barrel (very small proportion of new oak)
Producer: A 4 hectare vineyard owned for over 100 years by the Ponty family.
Old Bridge Rating: In this example richness trumps rusticity. Full-flavoured and impressive - rare to find Bordeaux one could genuinely consider 'good value'
