Parker's 100pt Château Pontet-Canet 2009: "Anticipated Maturity 2025-2075"

[[image0_center]]

Last July, we spent three weeks at Chateau Pontet-Canet with régisseur Jean-Michel Comme. Since Robert Parker shined a bright spotlight on M. Comme's biodynamically farmed oasis in Pauillac, publishing back-to-back 100-point reviews, Pontet-Canet has become one of Bordeaux's hottest commodities.

The morning following our visit and tasting, we received a most unexpected call. Albert Tesseron, the proprietor of Pontet-Canet, has long been rumored to have held back a chunk of the staggering 2009 Pontet-Canet — what many believe to be the most voluptuous wine of a vintage Parker called "the finest I've tasted in 32 years."

As we'd learn during that brief if exhilarating conversation, 180 bottles had been earmarked for WineAccess, 60 of which we’ve been saving for our Texas members.

Parker called the 2009 Château Pontet-Canet "an amazing wine … of irrefutable purity, laser-like precision, colossal weight and richness, and sensational freshness, this is a tour de force in winemaking that is capable of lasting 50 or more years." Parker's anticipated maturity? 2025-2075.

In the last five months, prices of the 2009 First Growths have skyrocketed. Some have nearly DOUBLED in value. As Parker's 100-point rating of the 2009 Pontet-Canet ($299) places it side-by-side with Haut-Brion ($1,200) and Latour ($1,900) — and a point ahead of Mouton Rothschild (99 points/$1,400), Lafite Rothschild (99+/$2,000), and Margaux (99/$1,500) — expect the same to be true of Pontet-Canet once M. Tesseron chooses to release his remaining stock.

Direct from the cellar in Bordeaux. Elsewhere: $399. Today: $299. Shipping included on 2 or more.
