Chateau Pontet Canet Pauillac 1998
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Pauillac|
|Brand||Chateau Pontet Canet|
Very pretty blackberry and currant on the nose. Medium-bodied, with a solid core of polished tannins and a mineral, mint and licorice aftertaste. Ready to go.
A pleasant, dark ruby-colored, elegant Pauillac, the 1998 displays hollowness on the mid-palate along with notes of red and black currants, tobacco, dried herbs, and earth. Although solidly-made, there is not much depth. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2012.
