Château Pontet-Canet 2010

Esquecer tudo, começar de novo e apagar os velhos hábitos, a fim de se re-conectar com a natureza, nascer de novo. . . Alfred Tesseron e sua equipa, liderada por Jean-Michel Comme (gerente da propriedade), Pontet-Canet's régisseur desde 1989, transformaram completamente tanto a vinha como a identidade do Château Pontet-Canet. Deixando para trás técnicas vitivinícolas convencionais, a fim de abraçar métodos orgânicos e biodinâmicos, que permitiram ao terroir recuperar as suas origens. As videiras ficaram mais livres e as suas uvas nunca foram tão belas. Os vinhos da Pontet-Canet têm progredido tanto que estão agora entre os mais prestigiados em Bordeaux.

I bought Chateau Pontet-Canet at Uvinum.
A wine with a high layer and a nice cherry colour. Smells like red tea. Licorice flavour.

Pontet Canet Pauillac 2017
I tried it during a wine tasting.
Violet red colour of a young wine. Smells of wood. It wasn't too sweet, it liked me.
Pontet Canet Pauillac pairs very well with a spicy fish .

Very light flavour. It uncurtains a scent of red and yellow roses.Well-balanced, with a good end.
A wine to be paired with "Tapas".
An ideal wine to give as gift.
