2009 Château Pontet Canet, Pauillac

2009 Château Pontet Canet, Pauillac

Ref: BORD0917
Red  |  Still  |  14% ABV

Jean-François de Pontet  was Master of the Horse) to Louis XV, subsequently Governor of the Médoc. At the start of the 18th century he bought a plot of land north of Pauillac and planted vines. Later, he added more vineyard in Canet, combining his surname with the place-name to label his wine. In the mid-19th century, Pontet-Canet was acquired by Herman Cruse, a local wine merchant and it remained in the Cruse family hands until 1965, when it was purchased by Guy Tesseron, a cognac merchant. So Pontet-Canet has only ever been in the hands of three families in its entire history. Since the early 1990s, the property has moved increasingly towards sustainable viticulture and the vineyards are now worked by horse, rather than tractor.

Tasting Notes

"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! 100/100." Lisa Perrotti-Brown
