PRODUCER: In the 1920’s, Mr. Seigneriau’s granddaughter, Mathilde Roy, married a wine broker Henri-Gabriel Bardet, who founded Château du Val d’Or, a Saint-Émilion Grand Cru. With the support of their only son, Roger Bardet, they acquired more plots of land at the end of the 1960’s, where Château Pontet-Fumet became established.
Roger Bardet passed on to his son Philippe a passion for growing wine, a taste for doing work well and a deep respect for the estate. In 2008, Philippe took over Château Franc le Maine, another Saint-Emilion Grand Cru.
WINE MAKING: Traditional Bordeaux wine making. Thermoregulated stainless steel tanks. Long vatting without crushing with two pumping over per day. Aging carried out in the style of Saint Emilion for 18 months, French oak barrels.
TASTING NOTE: Dark purple and shiny robe. Fine and open nose, evoking black fruits and roasted almonds. Delicately smoky, enhanced with aromas of marzipan. Frank and powerful attack on the palate, suggesting notes of black fruits and spices (pepper, nutmeg and cinnamon). Balanced and generous the finish is elegant and persistent.
