    Pontet Canet

    Château Pontet-Canet

    There's an old show business saying it takes twenty years of hard work to be an overnight success. If this is the case, in the past few stellar Bordeaux vintages, Pontet Canet has been the leading star stealing the limelight from its illustrious Pauillac neighbours, including Lafite and Mouton. Not bad for a mere cinquième (5th) cru. In reality, it has been 20 - 30 years of hard work by owner Alfred Tesseron, through implementing radical concepts such as biodynamics and even employing horses from Brittany to cultivate the precious vines. Techniques other wineries are chasing to catch up.

    Pontet Canet 2018 (1x300cl)

    Wine Advocate (97-99)

    The 2018 Pontet-Canet is made up of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot. Picking began on September 24 and finished on October 5; aging is in 55% oak barriques and 45% amphorae. Very deep purple-black in color, it comes rolling sensuously out of the glass with all the opulence and seduction of Cleopatra on a carpet. It emerges with flamboyant scents of crème de cassis, preserved plums and blueberry compote, and after a few moments, it bursts with nuances of molten licorice, sandalwood, Chinese five spice, candied violets, dark chocolate and dried roses, followed by underlying earthy suggestions of fallen leaves, black truffles, underbrush and wild sage. Full-bodied, wonderfully dense, rich, impossibly layered and very, very decadent, the palate delivers all it promises on the nose, with a firm, wonderfully velvety frame and finishing with epic length, a scintillating wave of freshness and a beguiling perfume. This is one for true hedonists.
