2013 Château Pontet-Canet, Cru Classé Pauillac
Alfred Tesseron himself summed it up nicely with his comment, "I love the ripeness." Pure, generous almost Burgundian aromas of strawberry compote lead to a fresh concentrated palate of sweet, silky refined red fruits and ripe, fine tannins. Elegant and pure, this stunning effort wears it's 50% new oak well and has a luscious, lingering finish. 100% biodynamic, this wine has a devoted following - and deservedly so. The château has only produced half of what they did in 2012 so this should be snapped up now.
