Chateau Pontet-Canet 1999

Bordeaux - Pauillac - Red Chateau Pontet-Canet Chateau Pontet-Canet 1999 1050/99
  • Parker : 90
  • J. Robinson : 16,5

Chateau Pontet-Canet's estate finds itself in the heart of Pauillac's Appellation. In 1975, the reputable cognac collector and merchant, Guy Tesseron, became its new owner and today, his sons Alfred and Gerard have carried on his legacy and have progressively restructured the estate. Starting with a model vat house: influenced by the Eiffel style and constructed at the end of the nineteenth century, the oak vat room was revolutionary. Its two-floor design enabled the harvest to be received on the top floor and transferred by gravity into the vats below. Stainless steel vats gave way to smaller cone-shaped cement vats, producing smaller volumes for vinification. This leads to more precise grape selection and ultimately higher quality grapes.



Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted at the Pontet-Canet vertical in London, the 1999 Château Pontet-Canet put in a respectable showing and demonstrated more class than either the 1996 or1982. Well-defined on the nose, there is a satisfying delivery of blackberry and blueberry fruit infused with dried blood and incense as it moves into its secondary stage. The palate is medium-bodied with classic tobacco-infused black fruit. There is nice salinity here, not a complex Pauillac by any stretch of the imagination, although there is impressive precision on the conservative finish. Probably at its peak now, the 1999 Pontet-Canet is a wine that never had lofty ambitions, but a wine that I would welcome on my table. Tasted February 2016.
