Chateau Pontet Canet Pauillac 1999
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Pauillac|
|Brand||Chateau Pontet Canet|
Spice and berry aromas follow through to a medium-bodied palate, with fine tannins and a medium finish. Very tight. Needs time. Best after 2004.
Licorice, creme de cassis, and toasty oak are typical of this classic Pauillac. It is full-bodied, with excellent sweetness, grip, structure, and more tannin than many 1999s possess. This structured, muscular effort will require patience. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2016.
