Chateau Pontet-Canet, Pauillac 2000
Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc
On the nose and the palate the Chateau Pontet-Canet, Pauillac 2000 displays tar and currants with hints of dried fruits and berries. It is simultaneously full-bodied, refined and delicious. The 2000 vintage is ready to drink but could be stored away for some more years.
Chateau Pontet-Canet is a classified Fifth Growth chateau that has been pushing the quality boundaries, introducing certified biodynamic farming, low yields, Breton draft horses working the vineyards and concrete eggs in the winery. Its 81 hectares of vineyards neighbour Mouton-Rothschild and sit on the same gravel plateau where the poor, well-drained soil is aptly suited to Cabernet Sauvignon, which makes up the majority of the plantings. Smaller amounts of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot are also grown.
