    What the experts say...

    An astounding, compelling wine with the classic Pauillac nose more often associated with its cross-street neighbor, Mouton-Rothschild, creme de cassis, there are also some violets and other assorted floral notes. The wine has off-the-charts massiveness and intensity but never comes across as heavy, overbearing or astringent. The freshness, laser-like precision, and full-bodied, massive richness and extract are simply remarkable to behold and experience. It is very easy, to become jaded tasting such great wines from a great vintage, but it is really a privilege to taste something as amazing as this. Unfortunately, it needs a good decade of cellaring, and that's assuming it doesn't close down over the next few years. This is a 50- to 75-year wine from one of the half-dozen or so most compulsive and obsessive proprietors in all of Bordeaux. Is there anything that proprietor Alfred Tesseron is not doing right? Talk about an estate that is on top of its game!

    Cuvée presentation

    The wines of Château Pontet Canet, with biodynamics certification since 2010, maintain the characteristics of the great Pauillacs: concentration, and these aromas of cedar and dark fruit. Fresh and balanced, we also notice red fruit and cherries. The palate is sublime, a race apart, with an almost Bourgogne silkiness. A sublime wine.

    Information about domain Château Pontet-Canet

    Château Pontet-Canet has only been owned by three families since it was created at the beginning of the 17th century. The property was established by Jean-François de Pontet, the King's equerry and subsequently the governor of the Médoc. Some years later, his descendants enlarged the vineyard with plots from a locality known as Canet. Classified in 1855, the property was purchased in 1865 by Hermann Cruse, a well-known Bordeaux wine merchant, who developed an international reputation for its wines. The property has belonged to the Tesseron family since 1975. Guy Tesseron supervised a substantial modernisation of the facilities, but also the vinification techniques. Today, it is his sons, Alfred and Gérard Tesseron who manage the domaine with Jean-Michel Comme, the steward. In the heart of Pauillac, the 80 ha of vines, alongside Mouton Rothschild, are planted on a hilltop of Garonne gravel and sand. It was a revolution which made Alfred Tesseron and Jean-Michel Comme, in the mid-2000s, convert the first classical premier cru of the Médoc to biodynamics. This duo managed to lift this fifth cru classé to the level of the great Bordeaux wines. To such an extent that 10 (years) later, Pontent-Canet can emulate this. Nothing is left to chance for the élevage. The domaine’s teams continue to innovate to create the best wines. The wines are then aged for 16 to 20 months. Aging takes place in oak barrels, about two-thirds of which are renewed each year and, since 2012, in amphora (for a third). The shape of these was conceived at the château for balance between full bodied and tension in the wines.
