Château Pontet-Canet

Château Pontet-Canet

For three hundred years of history, the Château Pontet-Canet has been owned by only three families - a rarity in the Médoc area. The new era comes with Guy Tesseron, a cognac merchant from the region, who bought it in 1975. Together with Jean-Michel Comme, manager since 1989, he completely changed the vines and identity of Château Pontet-Canet. They began to grow vines with minimal intervention, by organic and biodynamic methods, and now even use horses to work in the field. Guy Tesseron says he and his team are not winemakers, but farmers. The work is only by hand, and in vinification gravity is used for minimal impact on the grain. After several years of testing, 100 concrete amphorae (dolia) designed by Pontet-Canet were installed in the winery. In order to show respect for the purity of the fruit and the land from which it comes, soil from the vineyards, whose wine matures in them, is included in the making of the concrete amphorae.

Bordeaux

Bordeaux

Bordeaux is perhaps the most famous wine region in France. It stretches 130 kilometers inland from the Atlantic coast. In 2018, 111,000 hectares of vineyards were registered, a figure that remains largely constant over the previous decade. The main varieties grown here are Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc and they are used to make different wines, each producer having its own blend and proportions of mixing the varieties. Here are produced some of the most famous, most expensive and long-lasting wines in the world - the well-known subregions Medoc, Graves, St. Emilion, Pomerol and many others. Bordeaux is divided by the Gironde River on the left and right banks. Characteristic of the left bank (Medoc, Haut Medoc, Graves) is the more serious presence of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend of wine, while on the right bank (St. Emillion, Pomerol) merlot predominates. In addition to red wines, Bordeaux is famous for the production of white, mainly a blend between Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, with the Sauternes subregion and the leading Chateau d’Yquem, famous for its complex and multi-layered, aromatic and sweet botrytized dessert wine.

Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon

This is probably the most famous red wine grape variety on Earth - a natural crossing between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc. From its origins in Bordeaux, this vine has successfully spread to almost every wine growing country in the world. Cabernet Sauvignon wines always demonstrate a handful of common character traits: deep color, excellent tannic structure and aromas of black berries and spices.
