GRAPE VARIETIES

Henri PONZ has carefully choosen all the grape varieties to find the best harmony with our 'terroir'.

For the red wines we use :

Merlot (70%) : Giving colour, fruit and roundness, with fine and elegant tannins.

Cabernet Sauvignon (20%) : With intense colour, giving flowery character and spiciness. The powerful tannins guarantee a complex bouquet after several years of bottle age.

Malbec  (7%) : Very colourful, it gives fruity and parfumed wines full of tannins ; it brings aromas of prune, tobacco and liquorice.

Petit Verdot (3%) : A grape variety that gives intense colour. With maturity the tannins are silky and give lovely spicy notes.

For the white wines we use :

Sauvignon Blanc : With a golden color, it allows the extraction of intense citrus aromas, yellow fruits giving great freshness to the wines.

Sauvignon Gris : Marvelous after some barrel ageing, it offers intense white peach and acacia flower aromas.
