Château Pontet-Canet Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2001

$96.95

Enticing blackberry and licorice character, with a tiny bit of tobacco. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a serious finish. Best after 2007. Wine Spectator

Vintage 2001 | classic powerhouse, vanilla, cedar, great balance, nice acidity, a dream!

Opened briefly - then closed down hard. Some clovey Brett nuances over a ripe plum-and-cassis nose. Still somewhat primary but no noticeable oak taint. Needs a decade to come around

My favorite baby Pauillac as I like to call them for some reason...classic notes of the land.

Pleasantly tart plummy aromas but unripe acidic plum flavors. This is gonna be a great bottle of wine...in 15 years. Just not there yet.

Mature with some elegance, a great vintage for Pontet Canet maybe over shadowed by some other vintages such as 2000 and 2005- but a wine definitely worth it - ripe and pure, a success with a cote de boeuf

Ripe, plummy, tobacco/leather on the light side. Ample but smooth tannins and a round midpalate that drops off a cliff. This lacked oomph and was a nice bottle overall. Fairly classic. No arguments but won’t write home about it either.

Very nice symmetry. This 2001 is living up to its baby brother to '00 and '05 value. Full bodied and can be enjoyed for many more year. But why wait.
