2012 Pontet Canet 75CL
Complex and deep, this dense ruby/purple-colored wine may not be at the level of the 2009 or 2010, but it is a successful wine in this vintage and a significant wine in 2012. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2035.
Forget everything, start afresh and erase old habits in order to re-connect with nature, be born anew … Alfred Tesseron and his team, led by Jean-Michel Comme, Pontet-Canet’s estate manager since 1989, have completely transformed both the vineyard and the identity of Château Pontet-Canet.
Leaving behind conventional vine-growing techniques in order to embrace organic and biodynamic methods, they have allowed the terroir to reclaim its origins; the vines seem liberated and the grapes have never been more beautiful. The wines of Pontet-Canet have progressed so much that they are now among the most prestigious in Bordeaux. The return to nature at Pontet-Canet has involved constant risk-taking, a development underpinned by real faith and deep passion.
What strikes the taster immediately is the energy these wines display, the expression of tension and intensity: they are bright and brilliant, as though freed of any constraint. Their internal balance combines contained power, uncommon precision of fruit, and undeniable class. They seduce by their full-bodied fruit, the finesse of their mouthfeel, and their natural elegance, delivering a natural emotion which enhances their seductive charm.
