Winemaker's Notes

Classified in the family of sweets, the Château Pontac is of great finesse in the mouth, well concentrated, lively, fresh and of a smooth creaminess. Nice nose of honey and a trail of yellow peach, fruit from the orchard. A fruity, soft palate, the evolution of a body slightly sweet and fruity, with notes of flowers and pollen.

Perfect as an aperitif with some savory biscuits, toast of foie gras or Roquefort, or cheese cubes of the Gruyère type, it will also accompany poultry, white meats, cheeses (parsley, Livarot, Munster ...) and desserts made from fruits (tarts, mousses, salads ...).
