VIDEO 063. CHÂTEAU PONTET-CANET

October 07. 2012

I was really happy when I went to Bordeaux last May, due to the fact that some of the most spectacular wines come from this region. But after 12 hours driving through France my joy was limited by the fact that my navigation system led me only to the eastern banks of the Gironde, because I forgot to click the „avoid ferry function“. Well, for the next time….My first stop was at Château Pontet-Canet in the famous appellation Pauillac.

The Château is following the biodynamic approach and belongs nowadays to the most searched-after wines. Not only because they received the glorious 100 points by Robert Parker for the 2009 vintage. The quality and the minerality are immense. Together with Jean-Michel Comme, the technical director, I tasted the 2011 vintage. Let´s give it a try!

CHÂTEAU PONTET-CANET
CHÂTEAU PONTET-CANET 2011

Composed of Cabernet sauvignon 60%, Merlot 35%, Cabernet franc 3% and Petit verdot 2%.Dark garnet-red colored with a sophisticated transparency. The nose was somehow shy while tasting it , but the wine compensates the palate with an impact of cassis and blackberries. Juicy and refreshing acidity with high-quality but still dusty tannins. There´s this unbelievable and superficial minerality. Mad things are going on here! Medium-bodied and a long finish. A compact wine. Best from 2016 until 2035.
