1996 Chateau Pontet Canet Pauillac (half bottle) (Pre-Arrival)
|Vineyard:||Chateau Pontet Canet|
Impressive purple color, ripe cassis fruit, full body and a rich intense finish.
International Wine CellarDeep ruby-red. Blackcurrant, plum, tobacco and black olive nose is more complex and serious than that of either of the foregoing vintages. Thick, grapey and concentrated; still quite primary. This shows the fat and depth of the '96 vintage in the northern Medoc. Finishes long, with substantial tannins. Impressive.
