Pontet Canet 2013

Pontet-Canet

Case Format: 6x75cl

Max score: 93.0

Château Pontet Canet is a large fifth-growth property in Paulliac who can trace its history back to 1725. It is known worldwide for its environmental credentials, due to the impact of its previous technical director Jean-Michel Comme, who is considered a leading figure in biodynamic practices. Its 78 hectares of vineyard contain Cabernet Sauvignon (c.63%), Merlot (c.32%) and Cabernet Franc (c.5%), and border the illustrious Mouton Rothschild. Taken under the ownership of Alfred and Michel Tesseron, the quality of Pontet-Canet has vastly improved, seeing it blossom into a full-bodied wine that is brimming with ripe black fruits and integrated tannins.

40% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Franc, 10% Petit Verdot. 50% new oak. Mushy red fruit that reminds me of great Pinot. Fantastic sweet vanilla oak and really broad, brooding nose. The palate doesn’t quite match the nose for complexity – but that may well come, and the balance is really accomplished – supple tannins, medium body, high, integrated acid. But it’s the nose that really distinguishes this wine. Tremendous. (RH)

Tasted blind. Lifted, sweet but a bit simple and stringy. Pretty ordinary.
