K&L Notes

Another winner...sweet and lovely. Top flight. Boysenberry aromas; I love it. At property it was also very fine. Black licorice nose and some earthy notes. Lush on palate...long and sexy. Very pure wine! Round tannins. Only 28 hectoliters per hectare compared to 38 in 2006. 70% Cabernet, 25% Merlot and a bit of Petit Verdot and Cab Franc. At UGC the wine was pure and sweet. Lovely. They always decant this wine at UGC, others should also do the same. Ralph: Full and rich. Fine palate impression.

    This wine was poured blind at a luncheon hosted by Alfred Tesseron at the chateau during the 2016 en primeur tastings last year. The crowd of wine professionals from around the globe was entirely stumped, never guessing they were enjoying the 2007 Pontet-Canet. Such incredible purity of fruit, so sweet, so ripe. Utterly charming. And, let's face it, an amazing value. A star of the vintage!

    This was Pontet Canet’s first vintage to go full biodynamic, which, given the difficult growing conditions, makes this bottle a “petit miracle.” What a beautiful nose! Black cherry, leather, violets, baked blueberries, a hint of toast. The fruit is still quite fresh and given the structure and balance, this bottle will age for years to come.

    What an incredible deal on this wine and producer when you consider the 2009 vintage of the same wine costs $200 more. While not the most lauded vintage, this wine is still absolutely incredible. It has a great balance of fruit and savoriness, good concentration, and some quintessential Bordeaux minerality to back it all up. The biodynamic practices exhibited by this winery may make vintage more difficult, but have improved the wine quality beyond bounds. This is a great deal and a standout from the 2007 vintage, not to be missed.
    Top Value!
