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 tried it during a wine tasting.
Violet red colour of a young wine. Smells of wood. It wasn't too sweet, it liked me.
Pontet Canet Pauillac pairs very well with a spicy fish .
