Château Pontet-Canet

Château Pontet-Canet

Ever since Guy Tesseron and his son Alfred took control of Chateau Pontet-Canet, its profile has risen remarkably. Now considered amongst the ‘Flying Fifths’, Pontet-Canet has become one of the most prestigious properties in Pauillac. The quality of the wine in recent years has been extremely high due to the investment in refurbishment and innovations, and the Tesseron family have instituted 100% bio-dynamic farming, one of only two Bordeaux estates to have done so. The wine is being consumed in bulk by consumers and is coming to the forefront as one of the top non-First Growth Pauillacs with the opening prices for the 2009 vintage doubling that for the 2005 one indicating growing popularity for Pontet-Canet. In fact, many would say Pontet-Canet have produced First Growth quality wine in the last five vintages – with their average parker score beating that of First-Growth neighbours Mouton Rothschild.
