Chateau Pontet Canet


Chateau Pontet Canet 2021

A biodynamic wine that learnt its lessons from the 2017 vintage.

Robert Parker WA describes the vintage: Offering up wild, exotic aromas of blackberries, cloves and Indian spices mingled with notions of rose petal, bruised orchard fruit and cherry pit that evolve rapidly in the glass, the 2021 Pontet-Canet is medium to full-bodied, ample and fleshy, with a layered mid-palate and refined tannins that assert themselves on the firm, saline finish. Always one of the Médoc's most singular, idiosyncratic wines, it will be interesting to see how it performs in bottle. 92/100
