ABOUT THE WINE
Classified as a 5eme Cru Classe, own by the Tesseron family also owner of Lafon Rochet in St Estephe. Today, Chateau 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
This is a mixed vintage with some good wines, but not great wines. Pomerol and Pauillac were the most successful regions. Another vintage saved by some better weather at the end of the season.
