Château Pontet Canet 2012 – Pauillac, 5ème Grand Cru Classé

The nose is fruity, gourmand and finely powerful. It reveals notes of crushed cherry, blackberry jam and fine notes of crushed strawberry combined with touches of licorice, slight hints of oak, cocoa (discreet) as well as (very) discreet hints of caramelized oak, a hint of mushroom and a very discreet hint of blueberry (in the background). The mouth is fruity, beautifully fresh and offers minerality, a nice acid frame as well as a good matter. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of sour cherry, cassis and slight notes of crushed strawberry combined with hints of wood, a discreet hint of mushroom as well as a hint of licorice and a few slight woody notes. Good length and persistence. There are hints of iodized mineral on the finish / persistence.
