Château Pontet Canet 2019 Pauillac Cinquieme Cru Classe 12 x 75cl En Primeur Blend: Cabernet Sauvignon 60% Merlot 32% Petit Verdot 3% Cabernet Franc 5% Organic
A very tight, compact red that shows wonderful precision and definition with lots of blackberries, blueberries, stones and black tea. The sorting and de-stemming was all done by hand. Love the sensibility to this. Superb length and finesse. Subtle and sophisticated. No pumping over and gentle pushing down. Handmade. Very exciting and thought-provoking. Very long. 35% in amphora and the rest in 50% new oak and 15% one-year oak. 65% cabernet sauvignon and 30% merlot, the rest cabernet franc and petit verdot. Biodynamic grapes. (JS)
