Cellar for up to 25 years. Decant 2 hours before serving.

The origins of Pontet-Canet can be traced right back to 1725 when its new owner, Jean-François Pontet, decided to rename it after his family. It was only in 1972 that the estate began to bottle its own wines, but Pontet-Canet’s modern success is largely due to Guy Tesseron who bought it in 1975. The estate’s vineyards neighbour those of the legendary Mouton-Rothschild and are predominantly planted with Cabernet Sauvignon and some Merlot.

Today the estate is one of Pauillac’s largest and the Tesseron family have worked so hard to improve the quality of their wines that it regularly rivals more famous First and Second Growths in the appellation. The property is one of the few in Bordeaux to be certified as both organic and biodynamic, making it a true leader for sustainable viticulture in the region.

The classic style of modern Pontet-Canet wines is full bodied and opulent with luscious dark fruit flavours and firm yet approachable tannins. This fine bottling opens with intense cassis, blackberry and sour black cherry along with undertones of green bell pepper, forest floors and spice from the oak ageing. These are very long-lived wines that can be kept in the cellar for at least a couple of decades following the vintage.
