Pontet Canet 2006

Colour: Red
Vintage: 2006
Appellation: Pauillac
95+ (RP)
A fifth growth by the 1855 classification, and one of Pauillacs largest properties, Pontet Canet has improved beyond recognition with the since the early 1990s. Alfred Tesseron has overseen much of the investment gone into transforming this Chateau; it has venerable terroir, being located next to Mouton-Rothschild (with which it is often well compared) but in the last 15 years they have truly taken their wine to a level which makes a mockery of their lowly Fifth Growth classification (if the 1855 classification were to be re-run today, they would surely be a Second Growth). Their commitment to combining traditional practices with the most forward-thinking techniques – organics, biodynamics, fermentation in concrete eggs in the winery – and their absolute focus on just producing one single wine from their estate, has helped them to develop an amazing following.

Tasting Notes and Scores

Wine Advocate

The 2006 is a wine to stockpile, especially for those in their thirties and forties as it needs another decade to reach maturity, after which it should keep for 30+ years. This vineyard, just south of Mouton Rothschild, has produced an opaque bluish/purple-colored 2006 with an extraordinarily pure nose of graphite, charcoal, sweet creme de cassis, and a hint of scorched earth. Incredible concentration, stunning richness, and a 60-second finish result in a wine that transcends the vintage as well as this estate’s 1855 classification. This enormously endowed, modern day classic is a legend in the making. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2050+.

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.
