Tasting Notes:
A fine but subtle nose of red berries. Cool, fruit driven, redcurrants, vanilla, the balance is fantastic, tannins carefully handled, already approachable. There is a refinement not often seen at this early stage of the wine, indicating the perfection of the winemaker Jean-Michel Comme. A multi dimensional, complex wines at its best from this great estate. Stunning !

Tasting Notes:
The strength of this Pontet Canet is very impressive, making it structured and tannic with a long and intense finish. Yet it turns to bright and vivid fruits. Full body. A modern classic. It builds on the palate.
