Please note that you can only visit this Chateau via an introduction from your wine merchant. It is worth the trouble. Our guide was friendly, knowledgeable, and spoke fluent English. Pontet-Canet are leaders in bio dynamic production, and given the price of their wine can...More

It's one of my favorites Bordeaux's wines. First visit. The tour was very good and pretty interesting. Biodynamic and organic the whole chateau's team are privileging the terroir concept. Meanwhile, when we went to the tasting room to enjoy the 2008 grand vin, it was...More
