Established in the late 18th century, Chateau Pabus, is located 10 miles from Bordeaux on the right bank of the Garonne. Made exclusively of Merlot, Chateau Pabus offers a seductive mélange of cherry and violet aromas that echo of black fruit on the palate followed by a long finish that is highlighted by finely polished powerful tannins.
