Pontet Canet seems every year to move away from the way a normal Pauillac should taste and the 2011 continues on the same path. Cropped at a low 32hl/ha and made from a blend of 60% Cab Sauv, 35% Merlot, 3% Cab Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. it is very delicate on the nose but the palate....it's like a bomb going off! Very dense, muscular almost. The fruit is very ripe and the bright acidity is burried in the flesh and tannin. There is a palpable sense of mineral. Really very good indeed and up there with the best of the Left Bank.
