Estate Notes

Château Pontet-Canet 2015 was purchased in its original wooden case and comes from an excellent Bordeaux vintage, the best since the great 2010 vintage.

Pontet-Canet is a fifth growth on paper, yet not in reality, and produces classic left bank Bordeaux of quality well above its 5th growth status in the Bordeaux classification.

Reviews

"...an absolutely stellar Pontet-Canet in 2015. Sumptuous, racy and totally inviting, the 2015 is all class. Super-ripe dark cherry, plum, spice and exotic floral notes build as the 2015 shows off its alluring personality. Even with all of its raciness, the 2015 speaks with authority and power. Fine tannins extend the persistent, highly nuanced finish." Antonio Galloni

"Deep garnet-purple in color, the nose opens with exuberant black currants, red currants and black raspberries scents plus an evocative undercurrent of cedar chest, dusty earth, cloves, chocolate box and Provence herbs with a fragrant waft of lavender. Medium to full-bodied and built like a brick house with very firm, wonderfully grainy tannins and black and red fruits charged with the most singular energy, it finishes with incredible persistence and depth." eRobertParker.com
