The Tesseron family claims to remain in the dark over the rejection of the 2012 vintage of its second wine by the AOC board.
The 2012 vintage of Pontet-Canet’s second wine, Les Hauts de Pontet-Canet, has had its AOC application rejected and will instead be bottled as Vin de France.
Pontet-Canet owner Alfred Tesseron is aiming to decrease the oak influence in his wines by becoming the first Bordeaux estate to embrace amphora maturation.
Christian Seely, managing director of Domaine de l’Arlot owners AXA Millésimes, has revealed he is actively looking for a second Burgundy property.
