Chateau Pontet-Canet 2011

Tasted single blind at the Voyager Estate Masterclass 2015. Tasted and smelt like young Bordeaux, which meant it was the Pontet-Canet (the Cos d’Estournel was a 2004, and easy to pick).

Dusty spicy character, rose oil and tomato paste, red fruits, firm tannin – has some grip and grit – tangy acid edges. Not quite ripe, yet interesting and good to drink. Redcurrant flavour to close. Subsequent comment is it’s probably a nicer drink than the very opulent 2010.

Tasted : Aug-15
Alcohol : 13.5%
Price : $350
Closure : Cork
Drink : 2018 - 2031+
