2012 Chateau Pontet Canet Pauillac (Futures)
Back to Products
"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

-Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, 89 to 91 pts.
"A sinewy Pauillac, with a peppery edge, offering tobacco and savory notes that hold sway over a core of bitter cherry and red currant fruit. A chalky echo holds the finish, which has some length. Best from 2015 through 2021."
