Chateau Pontet Canet Pauillac 2016

Excl. tax

Deep, dark color and a powerful, complex nose, fresh and with a comforting purity.
The impressive attack is sustained by a dense, full-bodied, and refreshing structure, with succulent and highly precise tannins, leading into a sumptuous finish.

Critical Acclaim:

100  Roger Voss for Wine Enthusiast
“A voluptuous wine, this is rich and fruity yet properly balanced by a magnificent structure. Pure, crisp and packed with a black currant flavor, this will be a remarkable wine as it develops. Still young, it needs many years to develop.” *No. 2 Top Cellar Selections of 2019* (5/2019)

98+   Jeb Dunnuck
“Reminding me of the 2010 and, I suspect, a wine that will merit a triple-digit rating in a decade or so (I tasted this on multiple occasions and thought it was perfect on one of them), the 2016 Château Pontet-Canet comes from 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc, and the balance Petit Verdot that spent 16 months in 50% new French oak, 35% in concrete amphora, and the rest in second fill oak. Thrilling notes of pure crème de cassis, lead pencil shavings, crushed mint, graphite, and crushed rock notes all emerge from this deep, powerful, yet elegant Pauillac. The style of this wine has become more and more finesse-driven and pure, yet it hasn’t lost a beat on concentration or length. This singular, beautiful Pontet-Canet needs 7-8 years of cellaring (it has some accessibility today given its purity and balance) and will keep for 4-5 decades.” (2/2019)
