Château Pontet-Canet

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2018

Delectable Wine
9.8

When I tasted the 2018 Pontet-Canet in barrel I described it as a "freak of nature." The 2018 is more than that, it is a freak of nature. Made from yields of just ten hectoliters per hectare, the 2018 possesses off the charts richness, phenomenal balance and head-spinning intensity. Crushed red berries, flowers, mint, cedar and rose petal saturate the palate in a Pauillac of breath-taking richness. The silkiest of tannins frame the phenomenally pure, long finish. This is a towering achievement from the Tesseron family and former Technical Director Jean-Michel Comme, who together spearheaded biodynamic farming in Bordeaux and built the present-day estate around a philosophy of non-interventionalist winemaking. In 2018, grapes were crushed solely by hand. Because of the tiny yields, the entire production was vinified in Pontet-Canet's new smaller concrete vats. All winemaking was done manually, without the aid of external temperature control or electricity. Put in another way, if Lalou Bize-Leroy made Bordeaux, it would taste like this.

Bourgogne Chardonnay 2015

Pale Lemon in colour. A touch of vanillin oak with green melon - restrained yet balanced - not giving a lot on nose or palate. The following night still restrained but opened up a little more revealing melons, mineral and a touch of pineapple juice. Medium minus acid. At $115 AUD for a Village Burgundy - an ambitious price, but it is Leroy. The sort of delicate, refined white Bourgogne you would expect from Mme Bize Leroy. — 7 months ago

Les Folatieres Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay 1990

Tasted blind. Medium gold color. Killer old white burg nose. Notes of lemon creme, white dry soil, some spice, a little honey. Rich and powerful in the mouth. Some fine acidity on the finish causes some pucker. Very interesting overall profile, and my guess is I’ve never had this before which is accurate. I go with a 95 Corton Charlie as a guess. The power and great mouthfeel expanded as this absorbed air over the afternoon. Each sip better than the last. — 10 months ago
