Château Pontet Canet, Pauillac (5ème Cru Classé) 2000
79% Cabernet Sauvignon/10% Merlot/10% Cabernet Franc. A classic mature vintage. the nose offers an attractive interplay between deep buttery black fruits, some cedar and graphite notes and a cool, minty Cabernet character. Plenty of structure with backward, muscular personality; beautiful fruit on the attack and alluring purity and nicely textured mouthfeel; full boded finish.
