The first bottle of my 2009 en primeur orders that I’m busting open. And I think the second wine of Pontet Canet can’t be a bad place to start. Given the lack of age and probable inaccessible tannins, I popped the cork and stood this for 10 hours before pouring. Intense inky ruby color. A dense youthful aromatic coil of sweet blackcurrant, slightly smoky mulberry, pencil lead and freshly chopped green herbs. This dry, full-bodied wine has a smooth velvet texture, high acidity and young fine powdery tannins. The fruit is evenly loaded, blackcurrant and anise prevail on the long finish, with a hint of saltish birch at the end. 14% alc. A good representative wine for the Pauillac, can’t wait to drink Pontet-Canet itself! Drink now – 2030.

A superb wine with the purest fruit great freshness and ripeness. It is certainly structured with dry tannins while the blackcurrant freshness is also all there. The biodynamic wine has a great limpid flowing feel backed by power. Wine Enthusiast.

This has an impressive powerful and hearty structure, with seductive floral, currant and licorice aromas and flavors, showing powerful tannins at the end. This sneaks up on you at the end. Structured and very, very powerful. The blockbuster tannins a... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Ducru Beaucaillou 1500ml

This is amazingly expressive now considering how huge it is, with stunning espresso and warm fig confiture aromas followed by lush layer after layer of blackberry paste, cassis and plum sauce. A terrific loam underpinning strides in on the finish, which is weighty but sports serious cut. Equal parts fruit and earth. Best from 2018 through 2038.

60% Cabernet Sauvignon 33% Merlot 5 % Cabernet Franc 2% Petit Verdot. Another stunning wine from the folks at Pontet Canet qualitatively this producer is absolutely on fire! This wine is incredibly dark and concentrated but has tremendous finesse to balance out all the aspects of this gem. This wine has so much going on; notes of blueberry blackberry cassis vanilla coffee and crushed rock. This wine is literally seamless! Once again one of my favorite wines of the vintage.

Served blind at the Southwold 2009 tasting. I have tasted the Pontet-Canet 09 several times in bottle but I wanted to wait until I could tasted it blind before posting my first appraisal in bottle (which was done in two different flights.) It has a very rich almost extravagant bouquet with blackberry black olive compote a touch of balsamic and graphite. It is very intense although it seems to calm down in the glass. The palate is very smooth underpinned by supple saturated tannins. This is primal loaded with glycerine a 2009 determined to make an impression which it most certainly does. Yet does it quite have the panache and class on the finish compared not only to its peers but the Pontet 10? Tasted January 2013. Neal Martins Wine Journal.
