Château Pontet-Canet is a red wine produced in the Pauillac appellation. The vineyard of this 5ème cru classé covers a total area of 81 hectares. The vines, which are an average of 40 to 45 years old, are planted on gravelly Quaternary soils. The wine is aged for 16 months in oak barrels (60% of which are new).
Displaying a very intense red color, the Château Pontet-Canet 2000 reveals a powerful nose, beautifully balanced between fruit (blackberry, raspberry) and the wood of its barrel-aging (licorice, toasted notes). The attack on the palate shows great amplitude and sweetness. This long wine is endowed with an incredible structure, offering very soft tannins. The finish is anything but aggressive and reveals superb length.
