Tasting Notes: Château Pontet-Teyssier contains about 80% Merlot with the remaining 20% comprised of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, a normal blending for Saint-Émilion estates. The wine is considered very fruity and subtle with a distinctive red ruby color. It is the epitome of finesse and elegance.

Martine and Julian Palau purchased Château Pontet-Teyssier in 1976 along with a larger property called Château Laroche on the opposite side of the Garonne River. Madame Palau immediately set out to upgrade both the properties and vineyards. Today, the combined châteaux has more than doubled to 48 hectares, with more than 31 under vine, making it a rather sizeable estate for the area.
