Château Pontet Canet 2021 - 5th Cru Class

Located in the commune of Pauillac, the vineyard covers 81 hectares... The soul of Pontet-Canet is the "Plateau", a ridge of Garonnaise gravel from the Günz which rests on a limestone base. This lean, well-drained soil fosters the demanding character of the Cabernet Sauvignon, the signature of the great Pauillacs.

Planted in the center of the hillside, the Cabernet Franc brings tannic nobility and finesse. On the periphery of the plateau, a few Merlot vines occupy the clay and gravel soils, sometimes more chalky.

After five years of conversion, the property obtains in 2010, its certification in organic and biodynamic viticulture. All the plots are ploughed with the help of 10 horses, so as not to compact the soil, while the vines receive "homeopathic" doses of treatments, notably based on plants from the estate.

This perfect autonomy has been recognized since 2014 by the complementary Demeter label.
