ABOUT THE WINE
Classified as a 5eme Cru Classe, owned by the Tesseron family also the owner of Lafon Rochet in St Estephe. Today, Château Pontet-Canet is owned and run by Alfred and Michel Tesseron. Pontet Canet 78 hectares are planted mainly with Cabernet sauvignon 63%, Merlot 32% and cabernet franc 5%. The Tesserons have vastly improved the quality of the Pontet-Canet wines which are now full-bodied and packed with ripe, chewy, black fruits and fine tannins with great ageing potential.

ABOUT THE VINTAGE

Consisted of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc & Petit Verdot. Often under the shadow of the magnificent 2000 vintage 2001 provides much more early access to the fine characteristics of a great Bordeaux. Beautifully concentrated cassis and fine tannins. Although the ripeness and the concentration may not be as exemplary as the 2000, this is still a very fine and classic bottle of Pauillac that is very rewarding to drink now as of 2022., with notes of cigar box, prunes, violets and currants.
