The choice of plots, the age of the vines, our love of grape varieties lead us to produce varied wines. Our three wines have their own personality and represent the terroir and identity of Château Pontoise Cabarrus.
Château Pontoise Cabarrus was the first Haut-Médoc wine produced on the estate, made from the oldest plots of the property. It is our flagship label.
In February 2020 and after several years of membership in the Cru Bourgeois classification, Château Pontoise Cabarrus entered the new classification of the Crus Bourgeois by obtaining the Superior classification.
Age of vineyard : An average 40 years. The oldest plots date from 1956.
Grapes : Cépages : 60 % cabernet sauvignon / 40 % merlot
At the start, the balance is fresh and brings a lot of delicacy to the very velvety roundness of the middle of the mouth. The feel is dense, the tannins fleshy and powerful, while being backed up by a very fruity and expressive bouquet. It is a wine with undeniable charm and exceptional ability to lay down.
Château Hauts de Plaisance or Côté Pontoise is the second wine in the Haut-Médoc appellation of the property. Unlike Château Pontoise Cabarrus, it is produced from younger vines located on the edge of the estuary.
Presented with either a classic label under Château Hauts de Plaisance or a more modern label under Côté Pontoise it is elaborated without new barrels. A fruity wine that is really moreish!
Age of vineyard : 15-20 years.
Grapes : 50 % cabernet sauvignon / 50 % merlot
Pretty black fruits on the nose, this complex wine has a nice balance and freshness.

The nose and color are intense. On the palate, the wine is structured, both powerful with subtle aromas characterized by violet and spices.
