Chateau Pontet-Canet Pauillac 2019

$149.00

Jean Francois Pontet, Royal Master of the Horse in the early 18th Century, bought and consolidated several plots of land located northwest of Pauillac. Several years later, in 1750, his descendants bought neighboring vineyards in an area named “Canet”, thus creating one of the largest estates in the entire Medoc.

Today, the chateau in Pauillac is known for making some of the absolute best wines on the planet, and in really great vintages, I think they really flex their muscles and show why they belong mentioned amongst the BDX elite.

In the 2019 vintage, their triple 99-point showing should come as no surprise, with Wine Enthusiast deeming it a, “luscious, sumptuous wine, with layers of black fruits and wonderfully cushioned tannins”.  James Suckling was equally smitten by the wine, waxing poetically: “It’s succulent and unadulterated. Like crushed, perfectly ripened grapes. The length is rather endless. The tannins build.” Lisa Perotti-Brown, the former editor-in-chief for Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate agreed with 99 points of her own, calling it “concentrated, and seductive, with a racy backbone and ripe, fine-grained tannins supporting the complex, layered flavors.”

99 Points, James Suckling
The aromas to this are really amazing, with a potpourri of spices and dried flowers, as well as redcurrants, sweet plums and even some peaches. Full-bodied with layers of ripe fruit and ultra-fine tannins that spread across the palate in an encompassing yet always elegant and pure way. It’s succulent and unadulterated. Like crushed, perfectly ripened grapes. The length is rather endless. The tannins build. Fabulous young red. 35% in amphora and the rest in 50% new oak and 15% one-year oak. 65% cabernet sauvignon and 30% merlot, the rest cabernet franc and petit verdot.

99 Points, Wine Enthusiast
This is a luscious, sumptuous wine, with layers of black fruits and wonderfully cushioned tannins. The structure of the wine is initially masked by the great fruits, but then finds balance from a dry edge of spice, smokiness and lifted acidity. It’s another great vintage from this biodynamic estate.

99 Points, Lisa Perotti-Brown, The Wine Independent
Composed of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc, and 2% Petit Verdot, the 2019 Pontet-Canet is deep garnet-purple in color. It features notes of prunes, creme de cassis, and wilted roses, followed by suggestions of spice box, iron ore, Ceylon tea, and underbrush. The medium to full-bodied palate is rich, concentrated, and seductive, with a racy backbone and ripe, fine-grained tannins supporting the complex, layered flavors, finishing long and minerally.
