Chateau Pontet-Canet, Pauillac, BordeauxChâteau Pontet Canet
Jean Francois Pontet, Royal Master of the Horse in the early 18th century, bought and consolidated several plots of land located north-west of Pauillac. Several years later, in 1750, his descendants bought neighboring vineyards in an area named “Canet”, thus creating one of the largest estates in the entire Médoc. Château Pontet Canet's topography and soil predestined it to produce great wine. In 1865 the château and its 120 hectares of vines came into the ownership of one of the great winemaking dynasties of Bordeaux, the Cruse family. Herman Cruse moved quickly to improve the situation at Pontet-Canet, employing Charles Skawinski (whose father Pierre worked at Giscours), despite Charles' tender age of just 23 years. There was massive investment, there being a new chai constructed to Skawinski's design, and the cellar - notable for being underground, an uncommon feature in the Médoc - was re-equipped. With time the reputation of Pontet-Canet grew to what it had been before, and it remained this way until both Herman and then his widow died, at which point control of Pontet-Canet then passed to other members of the Cruse family. This was perhaps a turning point for Pontet-Canet, as quality once more spiralled downwards. The Cruse dynasty provided the financial means to make one of the greatest wines in the Médoc but the wines were still blighted by harsh tannins with an unappealing dry, austere finish and it is really in the last half-dozen years that Pontet-Canet has fully-deserved its Fifth Growth status. In 1975, Guy Tesseron, solidly implanted in the Cognac region, and owner of Lafon Rochet in St-Estephe, purchased Pontet Canet. Assisted by his son Alfred, he has done much to develop. The improvement and change in style can be attributed to consultant oenologiste Michel Rolland as well as Alfred Tesseron himself.

Chateau Pontet Canet
chateau Pontet-Canet, Bordeaux PauillacAnother story of long term neglect at a once highly regarded Chateau. This Fifth growth property has taken a long time to recover from all sorts of issues it faced in the 1970’s. It has however, taken time to get the Chateau back on its feet, and only in the last 12 years or so has it shown its real potential. Until 1975, the famous Cruse family owned the Château Pontet-Canet and the estate was not Château bottled until 1972. In 1975, a well known Cognac merchant, Guy Tesseron purchased the Château and today his son, Alfred runs the estate. Since the sale, an immaculate tank room on two floors, an excellent chai plus large, underground cellars have been built and the general consensus is that the Tesserons have put Château Pontet-Canet back on track. The 80-hectare estate is predominately planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, the signature variety for the great wines of Pauillac. This demanding grape is perfectly adapted to Pauillac's climate and soil. In keeping with a longstanding Médoc tradition, it is blended with Merlot and Cabernet Franc, which add a touch of smoothness and charm. In certain vintages, Petit Verdot can also be counted on to contribute complexity. Pontet-Canet's vineyards adjoin those of Mouton Rothschild and are planted with Cabernet Sauvignon (63%), Merlot (32%) and Cabernet Franc (5%). Pontet-Canet produces full-bodied, well-structured, long-lived wines famous for their finesse and elegance. This is a deliciously mature Wine with great style and finesse. A great Pauillac. 

Chateau Pontet Canet 1996, Pauillac, Bordeaux  France Chateau Pontet Canet 1996, Pauillac, BordeauxRed Wine
The palate is tannic, powerful, high extraction and concentration. Muscular. A lot of new oak with a huge grip on the finish. perhaps lacking subtelty and seems quite a bit of alcohol on the meaty finish. But well-crafted and will need some time. Rated 95, Robert Parker

Chateau Pontet Canet 2000, Pauillac, Bordeaux  France Chateau Pontet Canet 2000, Pauillac, BordeauxRed Wine
A spectacular effort from Pontet Canet. The opaque ruby/purple-colored 2000 offers a gorgeously pure, intense bouquet of blackberry liqueur, cassis, smoke, and Asian spices. The Pontet Canet displays a firm, classic feel in the mouth, high tannin, medium to full body, exceptional concentration as well as purity, and a long finish. Bravo! Rated 92-95 Robert Parker
