Chateau Pontet-Canet

Bordeaux Day 1 Part 3

Chateau Pontet-Canet

Pontet-Canet is located in the northern part of Pauillac on the west side of the D2 neighboring first growth Chateau Mouton-Rothschild. Pontet-Canet was our last Chateau visit on this first full day in Bordeaux on the left bank in the Medoc. We were greeted that day warmly by Nathalie who was to show us around the Chateau. Nathalie had an American flag raised and was flying high that day in our honor. We were quite impressed and silently thought that their neighbors were going to get out the pitchforks (joking)! All kidding aside, it was actually a very nice gesture and surprising as I found left bank Bordelais warmer to those in the wine trade such as importers of their wines. Nathalie was working on her English and was doing a great job explaining the Chateau
