Year unknown, still nice, dairy nose and fine balanced tanines. We had it with a roastbeef which was a nice match !

Beautifully dark and rich. So typically pontet canet and to that extent, typically pauillac in style. Beautiful example of the pontet style and the ripe 2003 vintage. I personally love where the 03s are right now. Very hedonistic but starting to show some secondary aromas and flavors. The 03s never seem to shut down and just continue to get better and better

Pontet Canet tasting and dinner with Alfred Tesseron. The 96 is a nice surprise add from Clyde’s cellar. Thank you Clyde. This 96 is beautifully floral. The evolution is right around its peak. The body is medium full and the tannins soft. It’s an elegant beauty. The fruits are ripe and delicious. Leaner blackberries, black raspberries, dark cherries, strawberries and shades of raspberries. Soft earth; dry top soil, dry rock, limestone minerals, old tobacco, soft leather, cedar with dry and withering red & dark florals. The acidity is like a waterfall. The long finish is well balanced fruit & earth and in a sweet spot. Photos of; our dinner group, tasting room at Pontet Canet, the horse plows they still use in the fields and Chateau Pontet Canet.

Sweet maturing fruit, lovely balance. At 15 years old, the 5th growth '99s are in full stride.

Absolutely awesome in every way. Youthful and dark with a lot of fruit. Starting to show some secondary flavors and aromatics but still so young. 00, 03 and 05 Pontet canet are amazing right now but heck 04, 06 and pretty much every vintage since 2000 are amazing. What a top notch producer. This is showing beautifully. My favorite Bordeaux of the night

Crazy-cool nose of black dusty soil, smoked beef, dried herbs, and black fruit. A lot of acidity and tannin, more than expected. Really good.

Pontet Canet tasting and dinner with Alfred Tesseron. What a great vintage. Its tannin structure will outlive the 09 and anyone 45 and older. The 2010 is a forever vintage and while different than 09, it will undoubtedly be just as great. It’s just going to take a lot more bottle age than the 09. The body is full and round. The tannins have rounded but are still big and chewy. It’s more concentrated than 09. The fruit is really beautiful and again perfectly ripe. Dark currants, blackberries, dark cherries, black raspberries, dark plum, poached strawberries with hints of raspberries. Soft soil structure; dry top soil, moist clay, medium intensity dark spice, fresh tobacco, dry herbs, crushed rock powder, with dark, withering florals with violets. The texture is velvety. The structure and tension are big. The length and balance are worthy of its perfect score. For me, it’s just not there, yet! The acidity is really good. The long, lush, ripe, well balanced, polished finish is deliciously persistent.
