Château Pontet Canet  2016 – Pauillac, 5ème Cru Classé

The nose is fruity, fresh, fine and offers a beautiful finesse / concentration. It reveals notes of crushed blackberry, slight notes of fresh cassis and fresh/ripe blueberry associated with discreet hints of licorice stick, slight notes of flowers as well as discreet hints of spices, mocha and cardamom. The palate is fruity, juicy, well-balanced, nicely mineral, fresh and offers a beautiful tension, a very beautiful finesse, a nice fat/suavity, a nice fresh and ripe fruit as well as a slight unctuosity and silky matter. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of cassis, blackberry and slight notes of cherry/red berries, licorice, caramelized oak as well as a discreet hint of vanilla and tobacco. Tannins are well-built and elegant. There is a slight hint of almond on the finish/persistence.
