Located in the heart of the vineyards of the left bank of Bordeaux, Château Pontoise Cabarrus has a historical charm and eco-friendly ethos. And if our wines have so much character, it is because they are marked by this terroir and the attention we pay to it.
Pontoise Castle Cabarrus was established nearly three centuries ago on the lands of the Haut-Médoc appellation, near the chateaus of Saint-Estèphe and the town of Saint-Seurin-sur-Cadourne. The winemaker makes the most of the soils and local know-how to make great wines and has created a welcoming chateau which strives for excellence.
Echoing these values, we are proud to belong to the new classification of Crus Bourgeois, through our great wine, Château Pontoise Cabarrus.
At the winery, we believe that everyone can enjoy a good wine and talk about it, be they poet, winemaker or neophyte.
The attention paid to the vines and the precision of winemaking techniques are the prerogative of the craft. The craft, the sharing and taste of wine are what makes Laurent Tereygeol most proud.
At Château Pontoise Cabarrus, visitors are greeted all week long to taste the wines, meet the cellar team and sometimes even get involved with the work of the winemaker. We feel motivated to share the know-how of the estate with our visitors along with the atmosphere of the cellars and its historical (or more recent!) anecdotes.
Due to its geography, Pontoise Cabarrus chateau belongs to the left bank of the Bordeaux Vineyard, and its plots benefit from the prestigious soils. Great names in history have also trod our cellars, such as the famous Thérésia Cabarrus, emblematic figure of the French revolution.
On crossing the gates the domain however, it is a new page of history that has been written over the last few decades by the Tereygeol family and its entourage. A story of courage that began in 1959 when Emilie Tereygeol, a Corrézian of origin, left everything in Morocco to embark on his vineyard adventure
A history of encounters, which will leave a lasting mark on Pontoise Cabarrus Chateau through the generations. On the walls, you could for example find the portrait of François Tereygeol, Laurent’s father, who knew how to develop the property whilst weaving strong ties with the surrounding families.
