Pontet Canet - Château Pontet Canet
  • Backward and powerful for the vintage, this blue/purple-colored 2004 exhibits classic creme de cassis, smoke, incense, and spring flower characteristics. Medium to full-bodied, dense, and excruciatingly tannic, this impressively endowed Pauillac is built for the long haul. However, patience will be required. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2025+.

  • Firm and fresh with currant bush and sweet tobacco character that turns to cigar box. Medium-to-full body with a racy edge to it. Drink or hold.

  • Tasted at Bordeaux Index’s Pontet-Canet dinner at The Ledbury. The 2004 has a very expressive nose, especially when compared to the 2005 at this stage. Lifted scents of blackberry, cedar and mint with something just a little decadent in the background: orange essence perhaps, vanilla pod. The palate is very well balanced though the tannins are not quite as fine as say the 2006 with just a touch of austerity towards the long finish. This will drink long before the 2005. Tasted February 2011.
