2012 Chateau Pontet Canet Pauillac (Futures)
- Size: 750ml
- Type: Red Wine
- Varietal: Red Bordeaux Blend
- Country: France
- Region: Bordeaux, Pauillac
"A softer, less powerful and less prodigiously endowed Pontet Canet, the 2012 exhibits notes of creme de cassis and new barrique vanillin followed by a medium-bodied, elegant wine with sweeter tannin (and less of it) than is found in the great vintages that immediately precede it. The 2012 is certainly outstanding and, in fact, many readers may prefer it to the blockbuster, out-of-this-world, over-sized 2010, 2009 and 2008. Medium-bodied, pure and expressive, this classic Pauillac should only require 5-6 years of cellaring. It should drink well for two decades thereafter." -Robert Parker Reviewed by: The Wine Advocate - 91 to 94pts
