This product is currently sold out.
Chateau Pontet-Canet was established in 1725 in the district of Pauillac by Jean-Francois Pontet. In the mid-1970s the estate was purchased by the Tesseron family well-known in the winemaking world for their production of exceptional Cognacs.
Since they assumed control, the Tesserons have revolutionised the domaine, introducing chateau-bottling and vastly improving the quality of the wines. From their site, which borders the vineyards of Mouton Rothschild.
The team produce wines which are full bodied and packed with ripe, chewy, black fruits and finely integrated tannins.
