Château Pontet-Canet 1995

Bordeaux - Pauillac - Red - 13° Château Pontet-Canet Château Pontet-Canet 1995 1050/95
  • Parker : 92
  • J. Robinson : 16

Chateau Pontet-Canet's estate finds itself in the heart of Pauillac's Appellation. In 1975, the reputable cognac collector and merchant, Guy Tesseron, became its new owner and today, his sons Alfred and Gerard have carried on his legacy and have progressively restructured the estate. Starting with a model vat house: influenced by the Eiffel style and constructed at the end of the nineteenth century, the oak vat room was revolutionary. Its two-floor design enabled the harvest to be received on the top floor and transferred by gravity into the vats below. Stainless steel vats gave way to smaller cone-shaped cement vats, producing smaller volumes for vinification. This leads to more precise grape selection and ultimately higher quality grapes.



Wine Advocate-Parker :
An old style Pauillac, yet made with far more purity and richness than the estate's ancient vintages, this broad-shouldered, muscular, classic wine exhibits a saturated purple color, and sensationally dense, rich, concentrated, cassis flavors that roll over the palate with impressive purity and depth. The wine is tannic and closed, but powerful and rich. It appears to possess length and intensity similar to the 1996. This is a great young Pauillac. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2025.
