DWL France is a family vineyard in Médoc, they produce around 350,000 bottles of red AOP Médoc wines, under different brands: Château de Panigon Médoc cru bourgeois, Château Amour AOP Médoc and the latest “La arrow de Cupidon” AOC Médoc composed of 50% Merlot and 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, a production of 60,000 bottles.
Château de Panigon seduces with its delicacy and a complex aromatic expression. The nose first displays notes of black fruit: blackberry, blackcurrant, then spread out the toasted notes. The palate is well balanced, long and round. It reveals melted tannins and opens with a pleasant fruity finish.
Panigon appears for the first time under the pen of Rabelais – “intrepid” drinker – in Gargantua and Pantagruel.
Rabelais recounts the navigation of Panurge and Pantagruel, determined to go and consult the oracle of the Dive bottle, and the reception of Pantagruel by King Saint Panigon and his court on the island of Chely.
The origins of Château de Panigon are said to have predated the French Revolution.
The first edition of the Cocks, Bordeaux and its wines guide , dated 1850, already mentions Panigon, while the second, in 1868, cites it among the Crus Bourgeois.
