Chateau Pontet-Caillou Pessac-Leognan 2008
Region: Pessac-Leognan, France
Winery: Chateau Pontet-Caillou
Variety: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot
Color: Medium ruby, lighter ruby edges.
Nose: Toast and light Brett, breadiness to the toast, drier black fruit and black cherry, followed by a nice, flinty minerality.
Palate: Very smooth and chalky mouth, with fine, but still quite structured and slightly bitter tannins, but they add savory herbs to the mid-palate. Slight Brett also adds just a bit of interest to the all black, brighter fruit, alongside low level toast and charred tobacco with anise. Needs some time to continue to integrate, has good aging potential.
