Ideally positioned right opposite Mouton Rothschild in Pauillac and following biodynamic practice, this 5ème cru classé is one of the new great wines from Bordeaux and has garnered a lot of attention.
Aged for up to 18 months in oak barrels. Fragrant and full bodied with blackcurrants and hint of tobacco, dry leaves and leather. Very smooth texture overall.
The spectacular 2003 Pontet Canet is still incredibly young and vigorous. This full-bodied classic boasts a dense purple color as well as a superb nose of graphite, creme de cassis, forest floor, licorice and a hint of truffles, low acidity, and extravagant richness. Most of the tannins have been resolved in this superstar of the vintage. It should continue to drink well for 10-15+ years. Drink 2014-2029- 95 pts Robert Parker, Wine Advocate
