Chateau Pontet Canet 2010

Product description

Purple colour, almost black. The very complex aromas have a vibrant character, dominated by notes of violet, blackberry, red currant and cherry, among others. There's complete harmony in the mouth, with a straightforward structure and impressive length. It is both dense and etherial. This is surely the greatest Pontet-Canet in modern times.

Blend: 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot

100 Points - James Suckling

The aromas to this are incredible with blueberry, minerals, dried flowers, and stones. It goes to dried meat and spices. Full body and incredibly integrated with blackberry, liquorice, and minerals. There's a wonderful purity to this. It goes on for minutes. The quality of tannins is amazing. Seamless. There's an amazing transparency that shows you all the elements of the wine's unique terrior. Try after 2018.

The 2010 Pontet-Canet offers a very deep garnet colour. Whoa, the nose explodes with a vast array of black fruit preserves and savoury nuances. Plum preserves, blackcurrant cordial, black cherry coulis and licorice with wafts of dried lavender, melted chocolate, charcuterie, black olives, truffles and camphor plus a hint of sandalwood. The full-bodied palate is completely filled with black fruits, exotic spices and earthy nuances with a firm foundation of ripe, grainy tannins and bold freshness, finishing with epic length and depth. So much more expressive and seductive than a lot of 2010s at this stage, and yet it is still incredibly youthful!
