Château Pontet-Canet 2006

SKU:1050/06 Bordeaux - Pauillac - Red - 13° - More Info

The famous chateau Pontet-Canet is part of the Pauillac appellation. It is located on a terroir composed of a rounded hilltop of gravels from the Garonne, on a calcareous base. This 2006 vintage displays a deep, dark red colour. Its nose expresses intense fragrances of fruit and a mineral note. On the palate, the attack is bold and the tannins are present and silky. This 2006 Pontet-Canet, a 5th classified growth, offers a lingering and delicious finish. 

Wine Advocate-Parker :
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.
