2009 Pontet Canet

Colour: Red
Vintage: 2009
Appellation: Pauillac
100 (RP)
A fifth growth by the 1855 classification, and one of Pauillacs largest properties, Pontet Canet has improved beyond recognition with the since the early 1990s. Alfred Tesseron has overseen much of the investment gone into transforming this Chateau; it has venerable terroir, being located next to Mouton-Rothschild (with which it is often well compared) but in the last 15 years they have truly taken their wine to a level which makes a mockery of their lowly Fifth Growth classification (if the 1855 classification were to be re-run today, they would surely be a Second Growth). Their commitment to combining traditional practices with the most forward-thinking techniques – organics, biodynamics, fermentation in concrete eggs in the winery – and their absolute focus on just producing one single wine from their estate, has helped them to develop an amazing following.

Tasting Notes and Scores

Bordeaux Index

JEB DUNNUCK - Tasted 10/15/2018

100 Points - 'The 2009 Pontet-Canet continues to just knock it out of the park every time I’ve been lucky enough to drink a bottle, and this beauty was as good as it gets yet again. Deep purple-colored, full-bodied, beautifully concentrated, and just about off the charts in terms of scale and density, it nevertheless just glides across the palate with an ethereal, seamless texture that never seems heavy or cumbersome. This is pure Pauillac in all its glory and is a monumental wine in every way. Drink it any time over the coming 4-5 decades.’

Wine Advocate

100pts - An amazing wine in every sense, this classic, full-bodied Pauillac is the quintessential Pontet Canet from proprietor Alfred Tesseron, who continues to reduce yields and farms his vineyards biodynamically – a rarity in Bordeaux. Black as a moonless night, the 2009 Pontet Canet offers up notes of incense, graphite, smoke, licorice, creme de cassis and blackberries. A wine of irrefutable purity, laser-like precision, colossal weight and richness, and sensational freshness, this is a tour de force in winemaking that is capable of lasting 50 or more years. The tannins are elevated, but they are sweet and beautifully integrated as are the acidity, wood and alcohol (which must be in excess of 14%). This vineyard, which is situated on the high plateau of Pauillac adjacent to Mouton Rothschild, appears to have done everything perfectly in 2009. This cuvee should shut down in the cellar and re-open in a decade or more. Anticipated maturity: 2025-2075.

Robert Parker (Wine Advocate #199, Feb 2012)

100pts - Deep garnet colored, the 2009 Pontet-Canet is a little shut down to begin, but with coaxing this baby is soon firing on all cylinders with a full-throttle nose of chocolate-covered cherries, crème de cassis, boysenberries and spice cake plus tons of kirsch and cranberry sauce sparks and a beautiful undercurrent of emerging tertiary characters: cigar box, sandalwood, chargrill, truffles and cast iron pan. Full-bodied, rich, multilayered and completely seductive, the palate is charged with incredible energy, with a firm backbone of velvety tannins and seamless freshness providing solid grounding and promising a very long life ahead. It finishes with an incredible display of epically long-lasting flavor fireworks. Wow! - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, March 2019

Neal Martin

The 2009 Pontet-Canet needs more encouragement from the glass than its peers, but it rewards the imbiber with seductive pure cassis and blackberry fruit, touches of autumn leaves and pencil box. The palate is medium-bodied with firm but fine tannin, a lovely bead of acidity. A harmonious, brown spice and smoke tinged finish fans out with confidence. You could open this now but it still has two more decades of drinking pleasure to give. - vinous.com, March 2019

Michael Schuster

[65CS/30M/ 4 CF/1PV] A very ripe, jellied blackberry sweet Merlot fruit to smell, with cabernet spice as well; rich and fresh, beautifully balanced in the characteristic style of the year; very finely tannic texture and lively acidity; a delicious mass of sweet core fruit, generous, fleshy, vivid, long across the palate with a refined Pauillac tannin and muscle - a gentle muscle - and with excellent length of fruit and gently minerally aromas. Very fine, complete Pontet Canet. 2020-35+
