CHÂTEAU PONTET-CANET 2009 (6) 98 WA


CHÂTEAU PONTET-CANET 2009 PAUILLAC. 5IÈME CRU CLASSÉ TASTED BLIND AS A VINTAGE COMPARISON AT THE VALANDRAUD VERTICAL, THE 2009 PONTET-CANET IS A WINE THAT I HAVE TASTED SEVERAL TIMES THROUGHOUT THE YEAR. HERE, IT IS CLEARLY BESTOWED A VERY POWERFUL AND INTENSE BOUQUET WITH RASPBERRY JAM, BOYSENBERRY, GRAPHITE AND COLD, WET LIMESTONE AROMAS - VERY WELL DEFINED AND FOCUSED, THE OAK SEAMLESSLY INTEGRATED. THE PALATE IS MEDIUM-BODIED WITH FINE TANNIN, CRISP ACIDITY, IN A FUNNY WAY MORE LIKE A 2010 TOWARDS THE FINISH THANKS TO ITS STRUCTURE. IT STILL FEELS QUITE BACKWARD AND WITH MUCH MORE TO GIVE, A SENSE OF COILED UP ENERGY CONVEYED UPON THE EXTREMELY PERSISTENT FINISH. IT REMAINS A DEEPLY IMPRESSIVE PAUILLAC WITH DECADES AHEAD OF IT. TASTED DECEMBER 2016. 98 WA 6 BTS. PER LOT $1,400 - $1,600




Price Realised: $1920
