Something about Chateau Pontet Canet
The fifth-growth Chateau Pontet-Canet is located in the heart of Pauillac appellation, just south of the famous Chateaux Mouton Rothschild. The beginning of one of the largest estates in the Médoc dates back to the 18th century. The 80-hectare (202 acres) estate is predominately planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, the signature variety for the great wines of Pauillac. Pontet-Canet’s terroir features rises of Garonne gravel on limestone bedrock. The château’s winegrowing philosophy is to intervene as little as possible and as naturally as possible in the vineyard. Only traditional viticultural and cultivation practices are used.

Backward and powerful for the vintage, this blue/purple-colored 2004 exhibits classic creme de cassis, smoke, incense, and spring flower characteristics. Medium to full-bodied, dense, and excruciatingly tannic, this impressively endowed Pauillac is built for the long haul. However, patience will be required. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2025+.
The bouquet is obviously less intense than the 2005. Blackberry, black plum, violets, a touch of undergrowth, liquorice and there in the background is a mote of hoi sin. Superb definition and very refined, developing a candied bouquet with time. The palate is medium-bodied, very pure with superb tension. There are notes of blackberry, cassis, blueberry and bilberry, wonderful balance, but the finish is still tannic and tightly-coiled. This is a Pauillac with real panache and style although would give this 5-6 years cellaring. Drink 2011-2025. Tasted October 2009.
Shows beautiful aromas of crushed berries and currant, with hints of mineral. Full-bodied, with lovely currant, licorice and mint. Long and caressing. Very refined and balanced. Another winner from Pontet Canet. Best after 2011.
