Chateau Pontet-Canet 2011


Chateau Pontet-Canet may be the most underrated of 'cru' in Bordeaux. It is a 5th growth that is at least as good as a 2nd growth. A Pauillac, very classic in its structure and black fruit. This will age beautifully over the next 15-20 years and probably should not be opened until 2020.

Vinous gave this wine 93/100:

Deep, opaque ruby. Rich aromas of blackberry, black cherry and minerals are lifted by a perfumed minty note. Multilayered and vibrant, with compelling sweetness of black fruit cocktail, spicy vanilla and mineral flavors. Finishes with very smooth tannins, a persistent violet note and an impression of weightlessness. I love this wine's purity.
