Château Pontet Fumet 1999 – Magnum



“1999 was an early ripening and abundant vintage of good quality although rain at harvest time contributed to irregular results depending on the estate. 1999, here has already aged and is very aromatic and more-ish. Pleasantly fragrant, it is supple on the palate and close to its best.”

Alain Chameyrat, critic, 2012 Bettane & Desseauve Guide
