The 2011 Pontet-Canet may not have the perfect scores of its illustrious predecessors but what it does have is classic Pauillac style.The nose is packed to bursting with aromas of creme de cassis, forest floor and even some elegant notes of orange blossom. It is full-bodied and velvety in texture, requiring a few years to become more approachable, and many years to reach it's potential.

Pontet Canet

There's an old show business saying it takes twenty years of hard work to be an overnight success. If this is the case, in the past few stellar Bordeaux vintages, Pontet Canet has been the leading star stealing the limelight from its illustrious Pauillac neighbours, including Lafite and Mouton. Not bad for a mere cinquième (5th) cru. In reality, it has been 20 - 30 years of hard work by owner Alfred Tesseron, through implementing radical concepts such as biodynamics and even employing horses from Brittany to cultivate the precious vines. Techniques other wineries are chasing to catch up.
