Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
At once brilliant and dense, finessed and decadent, ethereal and weighty, the 2008 flagship bottling is a towering achievement for Pontet-Canet. Upon release, this wine was lauded for its pure, intense fruit, its hedonistic richness, and its exquisite balance--in fact, it was hailed as the wine of the vintage! Now with more than a decade of maturity, this Pauillac is coming into its own, layering its crisp red and brambly blue fruits with crushed pencil lead, pressed rose petals, fresh herbs, cedar wood, underbrush, and smoke. Round tannins, electric acidity, and piquant minerality balance out the wine’s intense dry extract; poised on the edge of its drinking window, this ’08 Pauillac will drink for decades to come! A blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc, and 1% Petit Verdot in 2008, the fruit for this wine is biodynamically grown 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.
