Bright and plummy on the nose, with a hint of raisins. Full-bodied and very ripe, with firm tannins and a medium finish.

Pleasant, but slightly weak nose of dark berries, coffee and vanilla. Decent fruit, but slightly diluted. Thin finish. Expected better.

About This Producer


One of eighteen Fifth Growth estates, Chateau Pontet-Canet is located in the northern end of the Pauillac appellation, and has one of the largest production volumes in the region. The vineyards date to the early 18th century, and are planted on extremely gravelly, well-draining soil, typical of the best vineyards in Bordeaux. Plantings are predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot. Chateau Pontet-Canet wines are very concentrated, yet elegant, and have tremendous aging potential. The estate produces a second wine, Les Hauts de Pontet, as well as an additional red blend called Benjamin de Pontet.
