Côte de Boeuf and Pontet Canet 2004

image

Yes I know, summer is finally there and screams for light wines: whites, rosés and maybe a fruity red, but this nice piece of Charolais simply begged on its knees for a powerful Pauillac.

And it’s true: it would be a shame to serve this Côte de Boeuf, medium-rare, with an unworthy wine. So I pulled the cork out of a 2004 Château Pontet-Canet.

Dark red, nice currant nose. On the palate a mix of velvet and fine grained tannins. Still rather adstringent, but with that piece of beef it worked well. The wine will be a dream in about 2 to 3 years I guess, but on such occasions it is already very satisfying.

    […] retained. Let’s wait and see – the wine has certainly entered a very closed phase since my last taste about a year ago. Any other opinions on this one? Share: Categories: Bordeaux,France Apr13 2011 […]

  2. ralph Said,

    Haben Sie den pontet 2004 seitdem wieder probiert? Lohnt sich die weitere Lagerung?

    Freundliche Grüße

  3. Blindtaster Said,

    Hallo Ralph. Ja, ich habe ihn wieder probiert, die Notizen sind hier wiedergegeben: http://blindtastingclub.net/bordeaux/2004-chateau-pontet-canet-pauillac-currently-in-a-closed-state/ . Der Wein fühlt sich im Moment recht Tannin-lastig an, und eine weitere Lagerung empfiehlt sich meiner Meinung auf jeden Fall, da er im Moment sowieso in einer schwierigen Phase steckt. Der wird sich aber (hoffentlich) in ein paar Jährchen wieder öffnen. Schönen Gruß.
