Château Pontet-Canet 2013 – 5ème Cru Classé, Pauillac

Château Pontet-Canet 2013 – 5ème Cru Classé, Pauillac

A wine that according to Alfred Tesseron owes its high proportion of Merlot (rare on this bank of the Garonne and especially this year), its opulence and texture in mouth can be explain by the biodynamics agriculture (Alfred Tesseron). The nose is fruity, deep, rich, elegant and expresses notes of black fruits (blackberry, black cherry, plum) combined with notes of dried fig, ripe cassis, roasted notes, toasted notes and spices (liquorice, vanilla). The palate is well structured, deep, opulent, fresh, full and very persistent. There again the flavors expressed on the nose. Also a slight saline notes on the finish but it should go away with time/aging. The tannins are fine, quite well integrated but need time to soften. Beautiful aftertaste.
