Together with the cozy surroundings of Beta KL and Justine Tesseron, co-owner of Château Pontet-Canet enjoy four different expressions, Millesime 2000, 2009 Vintage, 2012 Vintage, 2016 Vintage, paired with four courses of modern Malaysian cuisine.
BETA is a brainchild of five dynamic individuals who are also behind the vibrant Modern European restaurant, Skillet@163. In Greek, BETA means the number 2, a representation of the second outlet and in the Malaysian context, it is a royal salutation for kings or sultans, which basically means ‘I’ or ‘me’. “We push the boundaries of local cuisine with creativity and innovation to bring familiar flavors within an unexpected food presentation.” – Head Chef Raymond Tham.
Chateau Pontet Canet produces what many people call the most popular and in-demand Bordeaux wine of the appellation. Pontet Canet is a powerful Bordeaux wine. It’s concentrated, balanced, tannic and charming as well.
The recent success of Pontet Canet is due to the current management of the estate by Alfred Tesseron who is helped by the director, Jean-Michel Comme. Since Alfred Tesseron took over running the estate in 1994, the property has continued to improve year after year. Even though Pontet is only a Fifth Growth, they are producing wines at the level of the best Second Growths and in some vintages, as good as the Firsts. Based on the current prices for the wines of Pontet Canet, the market agrees.
Situated next to Mouton Rothschild, Tesseron has inspired others on both banks to work more organically as well as consider biodynamic farming. To illustrate this point, in 2010, Chateau Pontet Canet became the first major Bordeaux wine producer to earn the official Agence Bio (AB) organic certification.
