The wine holds an intense ruby colour. Dominated by red and dark red berries, the nose is very expressive and well-balanced, combined with hints of vanilla and liquorice. Once held in the mouth, the attack is extremely round and develops into a silky sensation on the palate. Due to its richness and strength, the tannins have great finesse and perfect balance. The harmonious aftertaste confirms that the Château Pontet-Canet 2001 Vintage is really one that we can all enjoy and take great pleasure in tasting.
