    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 2013 (6x75cl)

    Wine Advocate (90-92)

    A blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, this biodynamically farmed vineyard (a rarity, but increasing in the Bordeaux viticulture), had tiny yields of 15 hectoliters per hectare. This doesn’t translate into super concentration, but this is certainly an outstanding effort in an extremely difficult vintage. The wine has a dense purple color, and classic creme de cassis, licorice and mocha and espresso roast notes that Pontet-Canet has displayed recently. The wine is medium-bodied, possesses excellent purity, equilibrium and sweet, but noticeable tannin. This is by no means at the level of the great vintages that have been so common of late from this incredible property on the Plateau of Pauillac across from Mouton Rothschild, but it’s certainly one of the vintage’s more noteworthy efforts. Give it 2-3 years of bottle age and drink it over the following 15 or so years.
