1979 Château Pontet Canet (Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot)
TASTING NOTES OF 1979 Château Pontet Canet:
- View: Château Pontet Canet 1979 presents a beautiful intense, clear and bright color. Color very strong, crimson with tawny hues.
- Nose: The nose is pleasant, open and thin. Aromas of ripe fruit. It was initially influenced by the wood, but will fade thereafter. There are aromas of precious wood, ripe red and black fruit (blueberries and plums) and marked spices including vanilla, and slightly Animal edge.

GRAPES: Cabernet Sauvignon - Merlot - Cabernet Franc - Petit Verdot

Pauillac Château Pontet Canet 5Ème Cru Classé reveals a fantastic tinge. In my opinion, the most noticeable smell is raspberry. Subtle saltiness on the finish.
