Pontet Canet - Château Pontet Canet
  • A solidly made effort, the 1982 Pontet Canet reveals some pink at the edge, but it remains a medium-bodied wine offering hints of menthol and red as well as black currants. Although it lacks concentration, the sensuality and suppleness provided by the vintage character are still appealing. It is best consumed over the next 3-4 years. Release price: ($120.00/case)

  • Tasted at the Pontet-Canet vertical in London. The nose is quite simple for a 1982, cedar, graphite, a touch of sandalwood and antique bureau. The problem is that is lacks vigour compared to the 1990. The palate is medium-bodied, quite sharp acidity on the entry, relatively simple and lacking some backbone towards the finish. This actually tastes over-cropped, touches of dates towards the finish. Drink now-2013. Tasted May 2009.
