Sommelier's Notes

Located a few metres from the village of St-Emilion, Château Grand-Pontet is surrounded by three premier grand cru classé estates: Château Canon, Clos Fourtet and Château Beau-Séjour Bécot, on the western plateau of St-Emilion.


Its has a plateau and featuring north, west and south facing slopes comprising limestone soils that is especially well-suited for planting the best grapes from the Merlot and Cabernet Franc varieties.


Chateau Grand Pontet was purchased by the Becot family in 1980 from the Barton (owners of Chateau Leoville Barton in Saint Julien and Chateau Langoa Barton) and Guestier families. The Becot family also own the well known Right Bank estates, Chateau Beau-Sejour Becot, as well as La Gomerie in St. Emilion and Joanin Becot in Cotes de Castillon.


The Becot family purchased Chateau Grand Pontet because it’s on good terroir that is located not too far from their other vineyards. Sylvie Pourquet, the sister of Gerard Becot and Dominique Becot manage Chateau Grand Pontet today.


Ruby red color. Aromas of red fruits like raspberry currant and smoky and toast. Silky on entry. Firm tannins with a dominant flavor currant and chocolate.


"A wine that combines big solid, but fresh fruit, with big flavours of new wood. It is solid, black and powerful."
