A red wine from Pauillac with very soft tannins

Produced in the Pauillac appellation, Château Pontet-Canet is a 5ème cru classé. Aged 40 to 45 years on average, the vines are planted on a total surface of 81 hectares. The vineyard benefits from a terroir composed of Quaternary gravel. The aging of the wine is carried out for 16 months in oak barrels (60% in new barrels).

At tasting, the Château Pontet-Canet 2002 develops fragrances of violets and red fruits on a subtle woody aroma. The attack is full and the palate is structured, distinguished, and full-bodied. The tannins are magnificent and incredibly soft. The length on the palate is fantastic.



Wine Advocate-Parker :
This wine has seemingly gone to sleep and is in a dormant, ungracious stage, exhibiting notes of green tea leaves intermixed with red and black currants in its dusty nose. A medium-bodied wine with moderately high tannin and a certain austerity, it seems to be a much less impressive effort than I thought from barrel or is it just impossibly closed? There is still substantial size and tannic clout to the wine, but the fruit seems to have gone into hiding. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2020+.
