Estate Notes

Château Pontet-Canet 2006 was purchased in its origional wooden case and is therefore in pristine condition.

Pontet-Canet is a fifth growth on paper, yet not in reality, and produces classic left bank Bordeaux that soars above its 5th growth status in the Bordeaux classification. While Pontet-Canet’s wines are not quite in the same league as its neighbour, Mouton Rothschild, they're not that far off.


"One of my favourite recent vintages, the 2006 is initially quite “strict” and “edgy” on the nose with cedar, blackberry and graphite but then manifests that opulence and almost braggadocio on the nose. The palate has a seriously good backbone, real structure and beguiling symmetry with a long grippy finish that suggests long-term ageing is a rule, not an option..."

"Enormous credit is due proprietor Alfred Tesseron for turning things around at this estate in 1994, and continuing to produce first-growth level wines. Pontet-Canet is one of the few bio-dynamically farmed vineyards in the Medoc, and Tesseron is such a perfectionist in both the vineyard and wine cellars."
