Château Pontet-Canet

Château Pontet-Canet

Jean-François de Pontet, royal governor of the Médoc, combined several vineyard plots in Pauillac in the early 18th century. Years later, his descendants added neighbouring vines in a place named Canet. This was the beginning of one of the largest estates in the Médoc, which quite naturally added the name of its founder to that of the land registry reference.

I got in touch with Château Pontet-Canet and they sent me to a store where they sold it.
At sight, it offered an intense cherry colour. It has a strong caramel smell. Sweet and tasty.

It is better not to pair this with food, as otherwise its fabulous taste might not be appreciated adequately. I tried it at a dinner with several friends and I really liked it.
Nice red Bordeaux colour. Smells like red tea. It tasted a lot like wine.
