About the Wine

Chateau Pontet-Caillou is a small little know estate in Pessac-Leognan that shares a namesake with the prestigious Chateau Pontet-Canet. The dominate Gravel based soils here are perfect for the production of Cabernet Sauvignon. Many of the top Chateaus in Bordeaux are based in this appellation; Haut-Brion, La Mission Haut-Brion, Laville Haut-Brion, and Pape-Cement. Pessac-Leognan lies just outside of the city limits of Bordeaux and is one of the most historic appellations on the left bank.

2012 was an above-average vintage in Pessac-Leognan, earning 91 points from the acclaimed wine critic, Robert Parker. The 2012 Pontet-Caillou goes above and beyond in this modest vintage and delivers a wine that's complex and full of character.

Tasting Notes: Red Wine. 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot, and 8% Petit Verdot. The 2012 Pontet-Caillou showcases aromas of black currant, black cherry, fresh plum, black tea, tobacco leaf, and leather. The palet is full and rich, medium-plus tannin, rich structured fruits with a smooth finish.
