Tasting Note:

Justine and Melanie Tesseron welcomed us to the immaculate Pontet Canet. Bordeaux's pioneering, biodynamically farmed estate hit back last year with a tremendous wine. The 2015 is every bit as good. Produced from 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot aged in 50% new oak, 35% amphora and 15% one year old new barrels. This is a wonderfully aromatic and seductive example. Violets and sweet purple fruits leap from the glass. The palate continues the luxurious theme with waves of lavish dark damson liqueur and cassis fruit interspersed with pure cranberries and noble mineral notes. This is very sleek and beautiful with chiselled tannins coated in velvety blackcurrant flavours. There is a great sense of tension; a balance of voluptuous ripe fruit, serious tannins and mouth-watering acidity. Very smart!
