Château Grand-Pontet 2005 Saint Emilion Grand Cru [75cl] France

Château Grand-Pontet, a 14 hectare St-Emilion Grand Cru Classés property was owned by Barton & Guestier until it was purchased in 1980 by Gérard and Dominique Becot, who also own the neighbouring property, Château Beau-Séjour Bécot. Grand-Pontet's vineyards are well situated on the famous limestone plateau found west of the village of St-Emilion and are planted with Merlot (75%), Cabernet Franc (15%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (10%).

Tasting Notes for Grand Pontet, 2005: Kudos to proprietress Sophie Porquet, who also makes the sensational Cotes de Castillon, Joanin-Becot. From this 35-acre vineyard she has fashioned a sensational blend of 70% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. Her finest effort since taking over this property in 1999, the 2005 boasts a saturated purple color followed by notes of ripe blackberries, black currants, licorice, incense, chocolate, and espresso. Thick, highly-extracted flavors nearly obscure the elevated tannins. This big, serious, rich claret is meant to last for three decades or more. A great wine for the vintage, it is also a sleeper of the vintage given the fact that this estate remains under most consumer`s radar.
