Château de Panigon is spread over 90 hectares in the Médoc appellation; 50 hectares are currently in production, located around and in proximity to the château buildings. The vineyard is situated on some of the finest gravel outcrops in the Médoc. It is planted to 45 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, 45 percent Merlot and 10 percent Petit Verdot.

The owners place as much value on making the wine as on growing the grapes. The most modern equipment is used in the most traditional manner, and the cellar allows the entire harvest to be aged in oak barrels. The entire production is château-bottled .

The production facilities as well as the château itself are regularly renovated and improved. Before 1855, the property held the rank of « cru bon bourgeois», and its status as a Cru Bourgeois was confirmed in the 1932 classification as well as in the later ranking of 1978.

After recent major investments, a promising future for Château de Panigon is assured. The wine has received numerous awards at various competitions (the 1996 vintage was given a gold medal at the Aquitaine Regional Competition in 1999).
