1855 Bordeaux Wine Classification (Fifth Growth)

A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc.

The Chateau Pontet-Canet 2010 is an astounding, compelling wine with the classic Pauillac nose more often associated with its cross-street neighbour, Mouton-Rothschild, creme de cassis, there are also some violets and other assorted floral notes. The wine has off-the-charts massiveness and intensity but never comes across as heavy, overbearing or astringent. The freshness, laser-like precision, and full-bodied, massive richness and extract are simply remarkable to behold and experience. It is very easy, to become jaded tasting such great wines from a great vintage, but it is really a privilege to taste something as amazing as this. Unfortunately, it needs a good decade of cellaring, and that’s assuming it doesn’t close down over the next few years. This is a 50- to 75-year wine from one of the half-dozen or so most compulsive and obsessive proprietors in all of Bordeaux.
