Chateau Pontet-Canet 1995

75cl / 14.5%

An old style Pauillac, yet made with far more purity and richness than the estate’s ancient vintages.

This broad-shouldered, muscular, classic wine appears to possess length and intensity similar to the 1996.

A great young Pauillac that’s ready to drink now or cellar till 2025.

History of Chateau Pontet-Canet

Château Pontet-Canet is a wine estate located in the Pauillac region and ranked as a fifth growth in the 1855 Bordeaux Classification. Château Pontet-Canet was founded by Jean-Francois de Pontet, royal governor of the Médoc, who combined several Pauillac vineyard plots in the 1720s. His descendants added neighboring parcels in Canet. The wine was not château-bottled until 1972. It has since been owned by the Tesseron family of Cognac fame since 1975, and under the family’s control quality has risen greatly, along with auction prices and popularity. Pontet-Canet is Cabernet Sauvignon-dominant, and is full bodied with a classic tannic structure, providing the potential for long-term cellaring. The second wine of the estate is Hauts de Pontet Canet.
