Château Pontac Monplaisir

This long established Pessac château was originally a hunting castle which belonged to the Counts of Pontac, who also owned Château Haut-Brion during the 16th and 17th centuries. During the French Revolution, the property was broken up and in 1920, the Maufras family acquired the property whose vineyards spread out over 50 hectares. In 1952, the owner’s son Jean, renovated the winery and the vineyards. Over the years, the family continued renovations and even prevented its dismantlement due to the urbanization of the city of Bordeaux. It is still owned by the Maufras family today, and they produce one white and two reds - Pontac Montplaisir and Cuvée Prestige – produced from organic grapes.

Graves, Pessac-Léognan

Graves and Pessac-Léognan are both located south of the city of Bordeaux unlike the Médoc which lies to the north of the region’s capital city. In fact, its most esteemed properties – Châteaux Haut-Brion, La Mission Haut-Brion and Pape Clément are only a few minutes’ drive away. Graves is the larger region of the two, which actually houses the smaller “cru” of Pessac-Léognan. Located further south, its climate is warmer, which usually produces slightly earlier harvests. But its soil is also different – well-draining gravel (known as “graves” in French) as well as clay. As a result, a higher proportion of Merlot is planted here – as much as 50% in some estates. It has long been a well-known region for wine and was sought as early as the 1700s for its bottles. Due to its unique micro-climate, its wines can often be notably rich in riper vintages but also moderately herbaceous in cooler ones. Another more unusual characteristic is that it produces excellent white wines as well, which can sometimes be even greater than its reds. ...
