2017 Château Pontet-Canet, Cru Classé Pauillac

Very pretty Cabernet on the nose - really nice elegance and freshness. It's cool and well balanced with lovely delicate fruit. It's an impressive palate: textured, fresh and long, and that rich Cabernet character shines through again.

TASTING NOTES

This is incredibly transparent and refined with blackcurrant, blueberry and mineral character. Full-bodied, layered and ethereal. Tannins have a crushed-stone character. Long and persistent.
