Well-situated in Pauillac with their principal vineyards located directly next to Château Mouton Rothschild, Pontet-Canet has risen rapidly to rival many First Growths for quality whilst remaining very reasonably priced.


Hailed as a “highly successful Pontet” that “overperforms on its 2019” (97 points DC) in the words of Jane Anson, the 2020 exudes personality. “A little old school in the best possible way”, it's showing complex notes of “graphite pencil lead and cassis bud…hawthorn, sage, rosemary and wild mint”.


Also scoring 98-99 points from James Suckling and 96-98+ points from the Wine Advocate, we concur with the major critics in unequivocally recommending this to all wine lovers.

Producer

There's an old show business saying it takes twenty years of hard work to be an overnight success. If this is the case, in the past few stellar Bordeaux vintages, Pontet Canet has been the leading star stealing the limelight from its illustrious Pauillac neighbours, including Lafite and Mouton. Not bad for a mere cinquième (5th) cru. In reality, it has been 20 - 30 years of hard work by owner Alfred Tesseron, through implementing radical concepts such as biodynamics and even employing horses from Brittany to cultivate the precious vines. Techniques other wineries are chasing to catch up.
