Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
A stunning effort, Pontet-Canet’s 2016 flagship marries intensity with precision, savory elements with super-ripe fruits, opulence with brisk acidity, and relative approachability with extreme longevity. Fistfuls of crisp red and brambly blue fruits mingle with potpourri, cigar wrapper, licorice, underbrush, black tea, and pencil lead in a kaleidoscopic array of notes. Polished and powerful, this wine unfolds on the palate to show exquisite balance between its chewy tannins and vivid acidity, while pure, sappy fruits find their complement in a serious mineral core. This powerhouse Bordeaux needs a few years in the cellar, but it’ll drink for decades to come--it’s a wine for the ages! A blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot in 2016, the fruit for this wine is biodynamically grown and hand-harvested, then it macerates for about a month, before aging for about 16 months in a combination of 55% new barrel, 35% cement amphora, and 15% neutral oak.
