Description

Chateau Pontet Canet 2016 is a popular Bordeaux red wine from the Left Bank in Pauillac. Often considered an Investment Grade wine – but also a fine red wine to be enjoyed on special occasions.

98 Points, Lisa Perrotti-Brown: “Around 55% of the wine was aged in new French oak barrels, 15% in two-year-old barrels and 35% in cement amphorae for 16 months. Deep garnet-purple coloured, it opens with opulent scents of plum preserves, spice cake, hoisin and crème de cassis with fragrant wafts of potpourri, wood smoke and rosehip tea. Medium to full-bodied, rich and decadent, with loads of spicy layers, it has a firm, velvety texture with great freshness and incredible depth, finishing very long and on a compelling mineral note. Drink 2023-2059.” Lisa Perrotti-Brown, 98 Points. “Around 55% of the wine was aged in new French oak barrels, 15% in two-year-old barrels and 35% in cement amphorae for 16 months.

99 Points, Antonio Galloni: “The 2016 Pontet-Canet is absolutely breath-taking. Powerful, ample and racy in the glass, the 2016 is exquisitely well-balanced and young. Savoury, high-toned aromatics and brisk mineral notes lend energy and delineation as this vivid wonderfully alive wine opens up in the glass. The flavours are dark and incisive, but it is the wine’s total sense of harmony that is most compelling. All of the elements are simply in the right place. The 2016 is tremendous. It’s as simple as that.”
