Château Pontet-Canet

Perched on the heights of the Pauillac appellation, Château Pontet-Canet is one of the most unmissable crus of the Médoc. Its founder Jean-François de Pontet, squire to the king and governor of the Médoc, acquired it in 1725, then his heirs bought a few years later the neighboring land of the place called Canet: thus was born Château Pontet-Canet.

The Domaine will reach the title of Fifth Grand Cru Classé during the classification of the wines of 1855 officialized for the universal exhibition of Paris. It will be acquired by Herman Cruse, a Bordeaux merchant of Danish origin, a decade later and will then be renovated from top to bottom. It is only when Guy Tesseron bought it in 1975, already owner of Château Lafon-Rochet to Saint-Estèphe, that Domaine starts to be reborn of its brightness. His son Alfred will reveal the extraordinary potential of his terroir from 1994, by converting the Domaine to biodynamic agriculture with the support of his steward and trusted man Jean-Michel Comme. Today, it is his daughter Justine Tesseron who continues his work, making Pontet-Canet shine on the wine scene.

The Château Pontet-Canet reigns today over an 81-hectare vineyard, entirely conducted according to the principles of biodynamics since the 2004 vintage. The Domaine is thus a precursor and a reference in the world of the Grands Crus Classés of Bordeaux. It was certified by the Biodyvin and Ecocert labels in 2010 and then by the Demeter label in 2014.

The grape varieties on the property are Cabernet Sauvignon (62%), Merlot (32%), Cabernet Franc (4%) and Petit Verdot (2%). They are planted on beautiful gravel soils containing clay-limestone substrate in places.

The Château Pontet-Canet rightly has a large following, as its history rewards the work of a daring gamble; the wines have a wonderful burst of fruit, depth and harmony that is simply divine.

Description Château Pontet-Canet 2014.

Despite a very wet spring, but after a sunny summer very favorable to the grape harvest, this fifth Grand Cru Classé of Pauillac has proved to be a great vintage and will continue to improve with time.
The robe is deep purple.
The first attacks on the nose as well as on the palate offer a wine chiseled like a goldsmith's jewel. The very varied aromas are generous. The mouth is round with a remarkable velvet on greedy touches of black fruits like burlat cherry, blackcurrant with a hint of liquorice. The finish is long and pleasurable and ends on hints of mocha and vanilla wood. A wine of great precision.
ATaste at room temperature and decant a few hours beforehand to give it time to express itself
Successive tastings will allow us to grasp its qualitative peak, but it is already a wine to be drunk with red meats such as tournedos rossini or with game withcepsfrom Bordeaux or Dordogne or chanterelles flavored with black truffles from Périgord or white truffles from Piedmont in Italy. It will also go very well with black fruit pies, or even pear pies.chocolateand almondsfresh.
A wine to be aged in a cellar protected from the light, bottles laid down with a hygrometric degree around 70%. Apogee estimated around 2035.
