Description:

Chateau Pontet Canet 2006
Pauillac, 5eme Cru Classe
"The 2006 is a wine to stockpile, especially for those in their thirties and forties as it needs another decade to reach maturity, after which it should keep for 30+ years. This vineyard, just south of Mouton Rothschild, has produced an opaque bluish/purple-colored 2006 with an extraordinarily pure nose of graphite, charcoal, sweet creme de cassis, and a hint of scorched earth. Incredible concentration, stunning richness, and a 60-second finish result in a wine that transcends the vintage as well as this estate's 1855 classification. This enormously endowed, modern day classic is a legend in the making. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2050+." R. Parker for TWA, 95+ pts. 02/09
12 bottles
Estimate $700-1,000
