Les Haute de Pontet Canet, Pauillac, Bordeaux, France, 2000
Displaying a very intense red colour, this wine reveals a powerful nose, beautifully balanced between fruit (blackberry, raspberry) and the wood of its barrel ageing (liquorice, toasted notes).
The attack on the palate shows great amplitude and sweetness. This long wine is endowed with an incredible structure, offering very soft tannins. The finish is anything but aggressive and reveals superb length.
