The winery is located in the municipality Pauillac in the same area in Médoc (Haut-Médoc, Bordeaux). In 1750, Jean François de Pontet (Governor General of the Médoc) acquired the first property, which was expanded in 1757 by descendants to include neighboring vineyards called "Canet". In 1862 the estate was taken over by the wine merchant Hermann Cruse acquired and remained the owner for a long time. The Cruse trading company bought this in 1960 Château Haut-Bages-Libéral and added some vineyards of this estate to the more profitable Château Pontet-Canet. When this practice became known, Cruse had to part with both properties. In 1975 the descendant Emanuel Cruse sold it to his son-in-law Guy Tesseron. Today it is run by his son Alfred. The well-known oenologist Michel is a consultant Rolland (* 1947). In the Bordeaux Classification in 1855 the estate received fifth place (Cinquième Cru Classé). The vineyards cover 80 hectares and are planted with Cabernet Sauvignon (60%), Merlot (33%), Cabernet-Franc (5%) and Petit Verdot (2%). The long-lived red wine is aged for 16 to 20 months in 60% new barriques. The second wine from 1982 was called "Les Hauts de Pontet", since the vintage 2000 "Les Hauts de Pontet-Canet".
