The plum currant and blackberry fruit is well-integrated already with taut anise singed spice and apple wood notes. Sleek and refined lacking the telltale sinew of the vintage. Very stylish through the finish revealing a persistent anise note. Tasted non-blind. J.M. Wine Spectator.

65% cabernet sauvignon 30% merlot 4% cabernet franc and 1% petit verdot. Opaque purple with a narrow garnet rim the bouquet is at once aromatic and reserved. Copious amounts of blackberry liqueur smoke and minerals appear with some aeration swirling about in a seamless sea of aromas. There is a sense of immediate complexity and harmony also reflected on the medium/full-bodied palate where layers of flavor are revealed again and again. Unlike many of its Haut Medoc counterparts the length


Winemaker's Notes:

"This is a structured, ripe wine that also has a great sense of freshness—vibrant blackberry flavor and lively acidity. The finish retains the same delicious freshness and brightness of this vintage...96-98" WE 4/13 "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...91-94" WA 4/13
