Château Pontet Canet

This is one of the finest wines produced in 2016, a quite magnifi cent wine that reinforces the rise of this château to the upper echelons of the Bordeaux hierarchy. Farmed organically for the past ten years, including the use of horses in the vineyard.

Alfred Tesseron has passionately built this estate over many years to the pinnacle of Bordeaux winemaking. Farmed organically, including working the vineyards by horse, Pontet Canet is punching up there with the very best. This vintage is matured in 50% new oak. Deep ruby in colour, the bouquet is a very stylish melange of black cherries and wild flowers. The palate is full of energy with fresh cassis and tight minerality, a little vanilla and nutmeg. The tannins are well tuned and the finish ever so fine.
Château Pontet Canet can be paired with all types of classic meat dishes, veal, pork, beef, lamb, duck, game, roast chicken, roasted, braised and grilled dishes. It is also good when matched with Asian dishes, rich fish courses like tuna, mushrooms and pasta.
The wine is matured in 50% new oak, 35% concrete Amphora Eggs and 15% one-year-old barrels.
