Chateau PONTET-CANET Pauillac 2007
Wine Region: Bordeaux - France
Grape: 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot
Tasting notes: Very deep robe. Explosive nose of black and red fruits with a beautiful minerality that one finds in recent vintages of Chateau Pontet-Canet. On the palate, the attack is full and leaves great length with finesse whilst subtlety conserving the tannins strength so characteristic of this vintage. The length is impressive with a beautiful freshness. The tactile sensations on the palate persist in a very long finish. The velvet texture no longer describes the tannins but more that of lace. It is a very beautiful wine which once more shows the greatness of Château Pontet-Canet’s terroir.
Expert Rating: Wine Advocate 91/100 | Decanter 17,5/100
