Château Pontet Canet

This is one of the finest wines produced in 2016, a quite magnifi cent wine that reinforces the rise of this château to the upper echelons of the Bordeaux hierarchy. Farmed organically for the past ten years, including the use of horses in the vineyard.

Tasting Notes

The grapes are fully destemmed and aged in 55% new oak barrels and 45% concrete Amphora. The bouquet is perfumed with aromas of blackcurrant and spice, leading to a palate that will delight the claret drinker. Classic in style, cool cassis fruits, damsons and black cherries, the tannins are powerful and sturdy and there is an attractive pencil lead streaking through the palate. Fresh and chewy on the finish, this wine will develop well over time.

Vinification

Destemmed 100%. Aged in 50% in new oak barrels, 35% in dolia (bespoke made with concrete containing some Pontet-Canet terroirs elements) and 15% in 1 year old barrels
