James Suckling

he aromas to this are really amazing, with a potpourri of spices and dried flowers, as well as redcurrants, sweet plums and even some peaches. Full-bodied with layers of ripe fruit and ultra-fine tannins that spread across the palate in an encompassing yet always elegant and pure way. It’s succulent and unadulterated. Like crushed, perfectly ripened grapes. The length is rather endless. The tannins build. Fabulous young red.

Decanter Magazine

Such gorgeous aromatics of freshly picked violets, cherries and bramble fruits - pretty and quite delicate. The texture is smooth and succulent, mouth coating but full of soft tannins which have the most delicious black cherry, blackcurrant flesh and liquorice tinge to them - so satisfying. Extremely well balanced and well integrated, this has restrained power, it's not rich or particularly round but straight, direct and layered rather than wide. Really long finish with great freshness and touches of cool blueberries. This is just such a great wine, everything you want and you know there's power there promising a long life.

Château Pontet-Canet

In 1705, the illustrious Jean-François de Pontet, governor of the Médoc, laid the cornerstone for what would become the legendary Château Pontet-Canet, but it was in 1975 that the venerable négociant Guy Tesseron became the custodian of this storied estate. Today, it is his youngest son, Alfred, who orchestrates the winemaking legacy with his daughter Justine. This prestigious estate in the heart of Bordeaux's Pauillac appellation, stands as a symbol of excellence and innovation. Known for its biodynamic and organic viticulture practices, this fifth-growth classified winery consistently produces remarkable wines that embody elegance, complexity, and terroir-driven character. A beacon of quality and sustainability in the wine world.
