We love the wine of Pontet Canet and are lucky to hold a few of the older vintages. One of the more progressive Bordeaux estates that have now converted to Biodynmaics their wines are sought after by collectors.

Notes on the producer

Château Pontet-Canet is a large Pauillac estate that can trace its origins back to 1725, when Jean-François Pontet gave his name to the estate he had acquired. Since Alfred Tesseron took over running the estate in 1994, the property has continued to improve year after year. Even though Pontet is only a Fifth Growth, they are producing wines at the level of the best Second Growths and in some vintages, as good as the Firsts.

Alfred Tesseron has an interesting, philosophical look at what they are doing at Chateau Pontet Canet today. When asked how he saw himself, Tesseron responded, “I am not a winemaker. My team members are not winemakers either. As most of the work is done in the vineyards, we are growers. Our success and achievements at Pontet Canet are due to our efforts in the vineyards, not the winemaking. At the end of the day, our goal is to produce unique vintages of Pontet Canet that are for drinking, not just for wine tasting”
