Wine Spectator's Top 100 - #07

Château Pontet-Canet
Pauillac 2005

France

Owner Alfred Tesseron has masterminded one of the most remarkable turnarounds on Bordeaux's Left Bank in the past decade, elevating the quality of Pontet-Canet's wines beyond that of fifth-growth. While Pauillacs such as Château Mouton-Rothschild and Château Latour draw much higher prices, Pontet-Canet too crafts powerful wines, built for aging, that express its vineyards planted on poor, gravel soils half a mile from the Gironde River.
