Ch Pontet Canet
A 5th Growth owned by the Tesseron family, Chateau Pontet Canet can trace its history back to 1725. Neighbouring the vineyards of Chateau Mouton Rothschild, Chateau Pontet-Canet is a large Pauillac estate with 78 hectares, and are planted with Cabernet Sauvignon (63%), Merlot (32%) and Cabernet Franc (5%).
In addition, driven by a respect for nature and the environment, the estate is managed by Biodynamic principles. The Tesserons have vastly improved the quality of the Pontet-Canet wines which are now full-bodied and packed with ripe, chewy, black fruits and finely integrated tannins. The wines possess marvellous ageing potential.
