Château Pontet-Canet Wine Dinner

Start the year with an evening of superlative Bordeaux wine from Château Pontet-Canet.


Situated to the north of the French village of Pauillac, the winery can trace its origins to the 18th century and was one of the few producers to be selected for Napoleon III’s famous classification of 1855.

But it was Château Pontet-Canet’s purchase by cognac merchant Guy Tesseron in 1975 that led to its celebrated status today.

At this first wine dinner of the year, Guy Tesseron's grandson, Noé, will appear online along with brand agent Arnaud Paulin to explain the history of the winery, its move to biodynamic farming and the evening's lineup of impressive wines, including its 2010 vintage, which received a 100-point rating from critic Robert Parker.

Staying true to Tesseron's roots, the dinner will conclude with a widely praised 50-year-old cognac.
