Description :

One of the great successes of the vintage and certainly one of the most profound Pontet-Canets made over the last decade is the 2000. Deep purple to the rim with a glorious nose of scorched earth, black currant jam, smoke, licorice, and roasted meats, it is full-bodied, incredibly powerful, dense, with low acidity but high tannin

Château Pontet Canet

Château Pontet Canet Grand Cru Classé Pauillac  

The vineyards of Pontet-Canet are not difficult to spot; examine any map of the Médoc and you will find, lying just northwest of the town of Pauillac itself, a large conglomeration of Rothschild vineyards which include Chateau Duhart-Milon, Chateau Clerc-Milon and Chateau d’Armailhac - not to mention the Premier Cru Classés Chateau Lafite-Rothschild and Chateau Mouton-Rothschild. These are illustrious neighbours for the Tesserons, who own the great swathe of vineyards directly to the south, in a prime position on the plateau of Pauillac, on typical soils of Quaternary gravel over clay and limestone.

The estate has 120 ha, including 80 ha of vineyards in all, planted with 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. The average age of the vines is 35 years. Once harvested, the wine goes into temperature-controlled fermentation, before up to 20 months in oak, of which 60% is replaced each vintage, all under the watchful eye of Jean-Michel Colome (pictured).

The wine is fined with egg white before bottling. The grand vin is Chateau Pontet-Canet, of which there are about 20 000 cases produced per annum. Since the 1982 vintage there has also been a second wine, Les Hauts de Pontet, of which there are also about 20 000 cases produced.

Notes de dégustation

Robert Parker : 94+ points
" Upgraded in score over my original rating, which was several points lower, Alfred Tesseron has done a remarkable job since 1994 with Pontet-Canet, which has been hitting first-growth levels since 2003. But the 2000 also shows exceptionally well. In need of another decade of cellaring, this dense purple wine has a classic nose of incense, charcoal, creme de cassis, and subtle new oak. Full-bodied, powerful, still very tannic, and shockingly backward, this is a big, rich wine that has put on weight and seems to need more time than I originally predicted. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2035+."

Bettane et Desseauve : 18/20
" La réputation de ce voisin de Mouton Rothschild est bien supérieure à la place qu’il occupe dans le classement de 1855. Sur ce domaine de 80 ha, propriété de la famille Tesseron depuis trente-cinq ans, l’élégance des vins lui vaudrait aujourd’hui une place parmi les seconds. Ce pauillac ne cesse de monter en gamme grâce aux soins vigilants apportés à la vigne et, depuis quatre ans, le domaine s’est doté d’une cuverie parmi les plus modernes du Médoc. Avec ce fabuleux 2000, Pontet-Canet entre en fanfare dans le XXIème siècle. A boire sur un baron d’agneau de Pauillac au four.
