Product description

Varietal Composition: 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot

93 Points - James Suckling

This shows incredible decadence and opulence for the vintage with dried meat, blackberry, blueberries and hints of mushroom. Full body, very polished silky tannins and a chewy finish. Lots of richness for the vintage. Persistent palate. This was aged 35% in cement eggs for 12 months. Better in 2018.

93 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Deep garnet in colour, the 2012 Pontet-Canet gives up a profound earthy/savoury nose, revealing notes of tilled soil, woodsmoke, mossy tree bark, fungi and bouquet garni with a core of raspberry preserves, boysenberries and dried cherries plus a hint of warm cassis. Medium-bodied, it has a firm grainy texture and a softly spoken, savoury character in the mouth, finishing with lingering oolong tea and dried herbs notes.
