One of the front runners in bio-dynamic wine making – Château Pontet Canet really are part of a revolution across the world. The vineyard is planted with 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot.

Following massive investment from the Tesseron family since the 1990’s, Château Pontet Canet are really making a major mark on the Bordeaux wine scene. Château Pontet Canet wines are particularly popular in the UK market.

Consistently well scored by the critics, Château Pontet Canet 2017 receives a score of 93 points from our benchmark critic Neal Martin, who comments;

“The 2017 Pontet-Canet offers attractive red berry fruit mixed with cedar and potpourri, underneath which lies subtle aromas of graphite that I would like to see a little more of as it matures in bottle. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins that render this one of the more approachable vintages in recent years. The cedar-infused black fruit is framed by fine tannins and a harmonious, graphite tinged finish. This Pontet-Canet should offer up to 20 years of drinking pleasure although it will be difficult to resist pulling the cork in its youth. Drink 2022-2036.”
