Tasting Notes

Goedhuis, May 2007, Score: 91-93

Pontet Canet was our first stop this vintage. A smiling Alfred Tesseron was nonetheless slightlynervous for he knows the first wine is the most difficult to taste. His fears were calmed knowing that we would be tasting his 2006 the next day at the UGC. Despite the fact that his wine did taste better the following day, we were completely wowed by it the first day as well. Healthy in colour, it reveals rich flavours of blueberry and cocoa that finishes on lightly toasted spice. Less powerful than the 2005 but superbly mouthfilling and plush. Alfred thinks it is better than his 2004 and has a long future ahead.

Producer

Château Pontet-Canet

This star has been rising since 1994 when Alfred Tesseron began practicing Draconian-like measuresto extract the most potential from his top Pauillac property. Some of the advances include debudding, de-leafing and severe crop thinning. Unlike many advanced Bordeaux cellars, their vinification vats are not set on "auto pilot" but are manually and meticulously controlled. They understand the needs of each vintage vary and respond accordingly.

Region

Pauillac, Red Bordeaux

Due south of St Estèphe lies the appellation of Pauillac, the king of Left Bank communes. It is home to three first growths as well as a plethora of other classified growths. Pauillac's renowned well-draining, gravelly soils enable its dominant grape Cabernet Sauvignon to reach fantastic heights of complexity and concentration. As a result, Pauilac's wines tend to be full-bodied with compact tannins and good freshness. Its aromatics are often what one associates with classic Bordeaux: pencil shavings, black currant and occasional mint. Some of the most famous châteaux of the commune are Latour, Mouton Rothschild, Lafite Rothschild, Pichon Baron, Pichon Lalande and Lynch Bages.
