About the Event
More about our featured château:
Today, a visitor to Château Pontet-Canet will admire Breton horses plowing the vine rows, a telltale of the vineyard's transformation to 100% Biodynamic and Certified Organic.
Château Pontet-Canet, in the commune of Pauillac, is a classic, left bank Bordeaux blend with sturdy underpinnings of Cabernet Sauvignon. The vineyard is planted to 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. At the heart of the Pontet-Canet terroir is an outcrop known as the “plateau”, a gentle, broad formation of Garonne gravel soil dating from the Günz era, sitting on a bedrock of limestone. The vine rows overlook the Gironde estuary.
The famous Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855, instituted by Napoleon III to showcase France's best Bordeaux wines for the 1855 Exposition Universelle de Paris, named Château Pontet-Canet one of eighteen Cinquièmes Crus (Fifth Growths). The estate remains among the elite of the Médoc viticulture.
The evolution to biodynamism will be evident as we taste vintages spanning the past two decades.
This event is being graciously sponsored and co-hosted by Commandeur Toni Bloomberg.
A Champagne reception will precede a seated dinner.
Dress and Regalia: Chic Summer Attire and Commanderie pocket crests.
