Chateau Pontet Canet 2000
A shared state of mind and a particular sensitivity are the key factors which have propelled Chateau Pontet Canet to the summit of Bordeaux wines in recent years. They are the expression of the Tesseron family’s quiet determination to ensure continuity over the long term.
Very intense colour. The very powerful nose features an excellent balance between fruit (blackberry, raspberry) and wood (liquorice, toasty notes). On the palate, the attack is full but very mild. This wine stands out with its fine length and imposing structure a characteristic of great Pauillacs made up of extremely smooth tannins. The finish shows no trace of aggressiveness and is very long.
94 Points James Suckling... A lovely lead-in of singed cedar and vanilla notes gives way to slightly taut, racy red and black currant fruit flavours that drive nicely through an iron-edged finish. Rather sleek and tightly focused, relying more on minerality than power.
