Tasting Notes

A full-throttle, powerful Pontet Canet, full of spicy, toasty oak and robust, dense rich fruit. There is terrific concentration here and everything that is needed for a very long life. Continues to punch well above its weight. 17.5 points

Reviews & Scores

(60% cabernet sauvignon, 33% merlot, 5% cabernet franc and 2% petit verdot) Bright ruby. Sexy, high-pitched nose offers blueberry, violet, chocolate, minerals and flowers. At once rich and youthfully austere, but with a depth and complexity to its flavors of cassis, violet, minerals and menthol that are rare for the vintage. Finishes with substantial but very fine, supple tannins and lingering notes of cassis, blueberry and bitter chocolate. This very rich but seriously structured wine is built for a long life in bottle. 91-94 points
