Winter resolved to be particularly gentle. Then, in spring, the rain invited itself. Numerous and often plenteous rainfall accompanied the first months of the vegetative cycle of the vine. The flowering, which intervened rather late, was especially marked by its spreading over time. Fortunately, the sun always returns. This being the case from the middle of July onwards, at which point a very warm and particularly dry summer prevailed. These favorable conditions endured until the arrival of autumn and allowed us to minimize the heterogeneousness during the long flowering period.

Tasting notes:
Very deep robe. Explosive nose of black and red fruits with a beautiful minerality that one finds in recent vintages of Chateau Pontet-Canet. On the palate, the attack is full and leaves great length with finesse whilst subtlety conserving the tannins strength so characteristic of this vintage. The length is impressive with a beautiful freshness. The tactile sensations on the palate persist in a very long finish. The velvet texture no longer describes the tannins but more that of lace.
It is a very beautiful wine which once more shows the greatness of Château Pontet-Canet’s terroir.

Jean-François de Pontet, royal governor of the Médoc, combined several vineyard plots in Pauillac in the early 18th century. Years later, his descendants added neighbouring vines in a place named Canet. This was the beginning of one of the largest estates in the Médoc, which quite naturally added the name of its founder to that of the land registry reference.
