    Winemaker's 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.

    Blend: 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit-Verdot

    Slowly the potential of this impressive wine is coming out. It is rich, the new wood flavors blending with the ripe blackberry sweetness and tight tannins. Chocolate flavor power through this concentrated wine.

    Good deep ruby-red. Sappy cherry, blackberry, licorice and minerals on the nose, with an almost candied quality rare for the year. Dense, sappy and pure, with enticing sweetness and noteworthy depth to the silky flavors of cassis, chocolate, licorice and minerals. Finishes with sweet, broad tannins and excellent persistence. Range: 90-93

    International Wine Cellar

    Currant and dark licorice aromas follow through to a full body, with velvety tannins and a caressing finish. A beauty. Best after 2013. 20,835 cases made.
