Pauillac's 5th Classified Growth, managed by Alfred and Justine Tesseron and their team, Château Pontet-Canet is today one of the best wines in Bordeaux. The property extends over 120 hectares, 81 of which are planted with the 4 great Médoc grape varieties.
Château Pontet Canet produces a wine from organic and biodynamic farming. The wines are pure marvels and the 2017 vintage is no exception to the rule.
Protected by the Gironde estuary, Château Pontet Canet suffered very little from the frosts of spring 2017. Throughout the season, good weather prevailed, allowing beautiful flowering and optimal ripening of the grapes. The rains of September 2017 did not dilute the quality of the grapes picked.
The harvest took place between September 18 and October 4, 2017.
The 2017 vintage was aged 50% in new barrels and 15% in second-fill barrels and the remaining 35% in amphorae for 16 months, tired with the soil of Pontet-Canet!
Chateau Pontet-Canet 2017 presents a beautiful garnet color, the aromatic nose has notes of red fruits (currant, raspberry) on the attack, then very elegant tannins already melted. The palate is elegant with silky tannins and a long finish.
A great wine without the slightest doubt!

The suggestion for 12 bottles: To appreciate its full potential and release its aromas, decant it 2 hours before serving. Accompany it with a sublime piece of beef.
