Tasted at Bordeaux Index's annual 10-Year On tasting in London. The 2006 Château Pontet-Canet has an extremely pure, vivacious, perfumed bouquet with crushed violets infusing the blueberry and blackberry fruit. But it is all about the detail and precision in this wine. The palate is medium-bodied with a gentle grip in the mouth: lightly toasted black fruit, dried orange peel, cedar and a pinch of white pepper. This feels very cohesive and poised with just a touch of mint entering right on the finish. What a great wine from Alfred Tesseron and Jean-Michel Comme. Go grab the corkscrew now, but don't feel that this wine has to be opened for another 5-6 years. Tasted January 2016.

Tasting note


The 2006 Chateau Pontet-Canet is a testament to the grandeur of Pauillac. This wine exudes a deep, dark red to purple hue, indicative of its intensity. The nose is greeted with opulent aromas of ripe black cherry and cassis, enveloped in a rich cloak of tight oak. On the palate, the wine reveals a highly extracted profile, with dense black fruits harmonizing with a refreshing acidity. The structure is robust, yet the tannins are remarkably smooth, leading to a long, savory finish. This sleeper of a vintage promises to unfurl its complexities with time, making it a superb addition to any collector's cellar.
