Pouillac 5ème Grand Cru Cl. 2009
One of the most prestigious 5ème Grand Cru Classé Pauillac in Médoc. Château Pontet Canet was founded back in 1705 by the then Governor of the Médoc, Jean-François de Pontet, who bought some land making vineyards. The Cellar was one of the few that became part of the prestigious classification of 1855.
A wine to be kept in time and discover it after years of rest.
Understanding the grapes, revealing the terroir from which they originate...
In response to a vinegrowing method which refuses to force the grapes, the vinification process also respects them. Letting things happen as naturally as possible has become the rule, with natural yeast and minimal intervention. Maceration lasts four weeks on average before the wine is run off. Each vat is the embodiment of an intimate encounter between man and terroir. technology is neither necessary nor desirable, as only taste can guide choices and reveal the emotional subtleties of a great terroir treated with respect.
At Pontet-Canet, the ultimate goal of the maturation process is transparency, trying never to hide what the vines have produced. The proportion of new oak has consistently diminished in order to limit the impact of oak on the wines. To this end, trials were conducted over the course of a few years and have led to the arrival of a hundred concrete dolia (amphorae), used to mature about a third of the wine. They were designed by Pontet-Canet for the estate’s wines. As the ultimate link between the wine and its terroir, the wall of each dolium contains a small amount of soil from the vineyard. They ensure respect for the purity of the fruit and the truth of the place where it originates. Taste alone decides how long the wines are matured.
