product Details

Chateau Pontet-Canet 1996 Pauillac 5eme-Cru 6x150cl

Chateau Pontet-Canet is a 5th Growth (5eme Cru) estate in the 1855 Classification of the Medoc.

The wine is typically a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (approximately 60%) and Merlot (30-35%), with small volumes of Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc; matured in French Oak barrels for 16-20 months.

Large-format bottles are great for extended ageing periods due to the wine's slower rate of maturation.  Indeed, this is a fantastic opportunity to purchase a mature case of quality Bordeaux.

These 6 magnums of the very well received 1996 vintage are presented in their original wooden case, unopened prior to this listing.

Please note that there shall be a shipping charge equivalent to 12 bottles applied to this lot.
