Chateau Pontet Canet AOC Pauillac
The chateau ポンテ カネ AOC ポイヤックメドック rating fifth grade
It is famous as a model of ポイヤック next to that chateau mouton Rohto silt! The rating is the fifth grade, but it is said that the ability is equal to the third grade high density and prominent potential [chateau ポンテ money]! [Jean Francois de ポンテ (Jean François de Pontet)] which was Governor of Medoc owned plural vineyards in ポイヤック at the time of the beginning of the 18th century. The successor bought more land called neighboring [カネ] and became the largest vineyard in Medoc. I received a high evaluation in quality of the wine from those days, but I hit it for the last years of the person of ポンテ at the time of 1855, and only the fifth grade rating was provided. The Cruises of the famous wine dealer rebuilt a chateau, and after that there was it afterwards at the time made a deal at the second grade price at the same level as a chateau. The person of this クリューズ has been going to part with [cool JIS] [ディッサン] which I owned [ローザン セグラ] at the time of a wine free fall of 1974, but I sell only this chateau ポンテ money to [ギ Tess Ron (Guy Tesseron)] of the son-in-law and maintain the still relations. There were value and the contemplation only for it in this chateau. I have splendid facilities including the storage of rare aging under the ground in Medoc, and the wine structure is very traditional. In late years I set a limit to a yield and change the kind constitution and have been reevaluated because I performed some reform.
Noble chateau of the stable management
[Jean Francois de ポンテ (Jean François de Pontet)] which was the governor of Medoc owned plural vineyards in ポイヤック at the time of the beginning of the 18th century. Several years later, the land of the adjacent district called "カネ" is bought more by a successor, and it is one of the largest vineyards in Medoc. The name of the person of ポンテ was increased by a chateau name and was current chateau ポンテ money on this occasion. After the first century, I linked the name for rating of 1855 and was recognized as one of the excellent wine production of Medoc chateaus. In 1865, Hellman Cruise who was a famous wine dealer at the time purchases a chateau. I made a new brewery, and he modernized facilities and spread the name of the ポンテ money all over the world. For next 110 years, the chateau was succeeded from generation to generation by the Cruises.In 1975, [ギ Tess Ron (Guy Tesseron)] which was a well-known cognac merchant of the cognac purchases a chateau. I create the wine of the high quality which I can take for after having bought it.As for a manager having changed during 200 years, only three times and relatively stable management have been done.

■Robert M parka Jr. From [the Bordeaux fourth edition]
If maximum amount of production and the person to be opposite immediately of the chateau mouton Rohto silt think the location of the field to envy to be it for a rating chateau of Medoc, it is the thing which wants to expect the quality that, in particular, is high and the wine of looks, but it is healthy, and that special ingredient called excitement knows that I was short when I observe a record from 1962 through 1985 minutely even if it is logical wine. But I regained force to know it after 1994 if I saw honor, and feelings have begun to appear. A seller for the brewing was completely renovated, and a second label was introduced for time when so cistern of good workmanship appeared, and the ratio of the new barrel was raised, too. In addition, the gain with the machine was canceled. The owner until 1975 was well known クリューズ company, but I just treated the company as one brand name that promoted ポンテ = カネ and did not tend to be seen with the ポイヤック product chateau packing by the manufacturer wine which had the unique individuality that was different from the others. It was about 1972 that I came to make chateau packing by the manufacturer, but I gathered it up and sold to France Japanese National Railways in the names of the ポンテ money anytime without displaying the vintage for many years till then. But it comes to light at a trial that the company ignores a blend and the custom of labelling it in 1975, and the company comes to cannot but sell a chateau. Merchant Guy Tess Ron of the well-known cognac buys it and I come to leave management to Alfred of the son and reach it in now. I think that people in Bordeaux agree, but as a result of the field of the ポンテ money hiding vast possibility if I do management, use carefully, and Alfred Tess Ron investing a large amount in a field and a seller in response to the difficult problem, and having carried out a very severe sorting process, as for the ポンテ money in after 1994, it is a growth stock eminent in メッドク.
I was made soundly, but I was missing in charm until the middle of the 1980s, and the interest was not held, too. But I improve conspicuously from the mid-1990s. There is the price in an upward trend in pursuit of the quality of the recent vintage, but still cost performance is still good wine.

From wine spectator HP
"Alfred Tess Ron of the owner is the most notable great one whom I switched in these 10 years in the Bordeaux left bank. The rises of the quality of the ポンテ money have already exceeded the fifth grade. A price goes up ポイヤック like chateau mouton Rothchild and chateau La Tour very much, but the chateau ポンテ money is powerful and expresses the severe soil of the quality of gravel with a structure polite at all to be worthy of the long-term aging well"
