Description

The return to nature at Pontet-Canet has involved constant risk-taking, a development underpinned by real faith and deep passion.

What strikes the taster immediately is the energy these wines display, the expression of tension and intensity: they are bright and brilliant, as though freed of any constraint. Their internal balance combines contained power, uncommon precision of fruit and undeniable class. They seduce by their full-bodied fruit, the finesse of their mouthfeel and their natural elegance, delivering a natural emotion which enhances their seductive charm.


Tasting

1990

Made from a very early harvest, this wine is rich with a bouquet of spices and tobacco and has a superb velvety mouth-feel. The finish is both flavoursome and balanced and has tremendous length

1994

Unsettled weather conditions had no adverse effect at all on the making of a wine expressing lovely aromas of red berry fruit and notes of eucalyptus. With silky tannins, the palate is beautifully balanced and has superb length of flavour.

1995

A vintage of outstanding weather conditions. This wine has a complex bouquet and shows a touch of age together with notes of fresh fruit.
Creamy tannins and power come through on the palate followed by a stunning spicy finish with great length of flavour.

1996. This vintage was saved by fine anticyclonic conditions just before the harvest. The wine shows wonderful classicism, a superb bouquet of flowers and tobacco as well as great finesse and elegance.

1998

With rain forecast in September, the harvesting was done very quickly and resulted in a wine with a seductive vanilla and floral nose. Its vertical, smooth-textured palate is followed by a lovely lingering fruity finish.

1999

An harvest picked rapidly, gave birth to a very expressive and powerful wine, with notes of spices, tobacco and cherries coming through, mingling harmoniously with the wine's silky tannins.
