The estate is dominated by Merlot (70%), supplemented by Cabernet Franc (17.5%), Cabernet Sauvignon (7.5%) and Malbec (5%). The wine is aged in oak barrels (90% new wood).
At the tasting, the Chateau Grand-Pontet 2018 offers a complex aromatic bouquet, with notes of ripe black fruits, cherry, fresh cedar and dried herbs. The gourmet palate reveals tasty notes of black fruits and nicely textured tannins.
