Chateau Pontet Canet 2008

Winemaker Notes

Very intense color. On the nose, both refined and complex, it is dominated by an expressive fruit of great purity. On the palate, the tannins have great amplitude characterized by finesse and a rare precision. The vibrant quality of this wine gives it an all together other emotional dimension.

Cabernet Sauvignon 65%, Merlot 30%, Cabernet Franc 4%, Petit-Verdot 1%.

96 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

A candidate for the “wine of the vintage,” Pontet Canet’s 2008 boasts an opaque purple color as well as copious aromas of sweet blueberries, blackberries and black currant fruit intertwined with lead pencil shavings, subtle barbecue smoke and a hint of forest floor. Full-bodied, with fabulous richness, texture and tremendous freshness, this first-growth-like effort is more developed than the uber-powerful 2010. Give it 5-8 years of cellaring and drink it over the following three decades. Bravo!

93 Points - James Suckling

I love the nose of sweet tobacco, currants, minerals, flowers, and stones. Full bodied, with dark chocolate flavors, silky tannins, and beautiful fruit. Long and beautiful, with a succulent finish and a great overall balance. Best in three or four years.

92 Points - Wine Spectator

Quite dense, but pure and fresh, with the core of fig, damson plum and mulled cherry fruit already well-defined and the back end of rounded loam and roasted cedar grip fully integrated. The finish is long and powerful. Best from 2013 through 2020.
