ABOUT THE WINE
Classified as a 5eme Cru Classe, own by the Tesseron family also 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 aging potential.

ABOUT THE VINTAGE
After a cold and wet winter, the new growing season started rather well with a hot dry and sunny June and July. And then things change for the worse with a cool and wet August. By the time harvest was about to start both right and left bank were affected by rain on a daily basis. Only Pomerol was saved as they always start harvesting ahead of the rest.
