2010 Chateau Pontet Canet 5eme CC

$881.00

This Pauillac estate dates back to 1725 when it was purchased by its namesake, Jean-Francois Pontet. Although classified as 5eme Cru Classe, the 78 hectares of vineyards neighbour those of Mouton Rothschild. Today, the estate is owned by the Tesseron family, who are most famous for their luxury Cognac, Cognac Tesseron. Rather unusually, it is also one of the few biodynamic vineyards of Bordeaux.

2010 was possibly the best vintage since records began in Bordeaux. The wines from this vintage are ripe and full of power with great acidity and tremendous tannin structure. They are very long-lived and show more structure and better fruit than earlier years. 

This is a superbly balanced wine with a rich and elegant nose of cassis, violets and stones. The palate is seamless with flavours of blackberry, liquorice, leather and minerals; all in beautiful harmony. It is incredibly intense and powerful with a length that lasts for minutes.

The 2010 Chateau Pontet Canet is a wine to buy now and cellar for decades to come.
