    A perfectly harmonious red wine from Pauillac

    Château Pontet-Canet is a 5ème cru classé produced in the Pauillac appellation. This red wine comes from vines aged 40 to 45 years on average, planted on a total area of 81 hectares. The vineyard is located on a terroir composed of Quaternary gravel. The wine is aged for 16 months in oak barrels (60% of which are new).

    At tasting, the château Pontet-Canet 2009 develops fragrances of blackcurrant and blackberries, along with subtle notes of cedar. On the palate, it is concentrated, with a delicious fruitiness and elegant, fleshy tannins. The wine is balanced and offers a perfectly harmonious structure. The finish is incredibly elegant.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    Deep garnet colored, the 2009 Pontet-Canet is a little shut down to begin, but with coaxing this baby is soon firing on all cylinders with a full-throttle nose of chocolate-covered cherries, crème de cassis, boysenberries and spice cake plus tons of kirsch and cranberry sauce sparks and a beautiful undercurrent of emerging tertiary characters: cigar box, sandalwood, chargrill, truffles and cast iron pan. Full-bodied, rich, multilayered and completely seductive, the palate is charged with incredible energy, with a firm backbone of velvety tannins and seamless freshness providing solid grounding and promising a very long life ahead. It finishes with an incredible display of epically long-lasting flavor fireworks. Wow!
