Château Pontet-Canet 1998

SKU:1050/98 Bordeaux - Pauillac - Red - 13° - More Info
  • Parker/WA : 86

Château Pontet-Canet's estate finds itself in the heart of Pauillac's Appelation. In 1975, the reputable cognac collector and me r chant , Guy Tesseron, became its new owner and today, his sons Alfred and Gérard have carried on his legacy and have progressively restructured the estate. Starting with a model vat house: influenced by the Eiffel style and constructed at the end of the nineteenth century, the oak vat room was revolutionary for its time as it was designed on two floors enabling the harvest to be received on the top floor and thus to be poured by gravity into the vats below. Inspired by its innovation, 2005 has given way for a new vat room unique to the Médoc, still respecting the gravity concept yet modern. The Inox vats have moved on and left room for smaller cone-shaped cement vats, enabling a vinification in smaller volumes and therefore a better selection thus more precision.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
A pleasant, dark ruby-colored, elegant Pauillac, the 1998 displays hollowness on the mid-palate along with notes of red and black currants, tobacco, dried herbs, and earth. Although solidly-made, there is not much depth. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2012.
