Description Sub Region
Defined, restrained, elegant and sophisticated, the ’10 Pontet-Canet is the ideal bookend to the extroverted 2009. Offering a textbook beautiful Pauillac nose, this wine wafts juicy red and black fruit, purple wildflowers, pencil lead, cedar, and herbs, and its classy, refined palate manages to be both rich and laser precise. A blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc, and 1% Petit Verdot in 2010, the fruit for this wine is biodynamically grown fruit and hand-harvested, then it macerates for about a month, before aging in barrel (at least one-third used) for 16 to 20 months before bottling. This ’10 offers tremendous purity and detail, mouth-coating silky tannins, terrific minerality, lovely weight and a marvelous architectural structure that makes it a wine for the ages.
