Château Pontet-Canet Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

...At this fabulous terroir just south of Mouton-Rothschild...The result is a succession of extraordinary wines. It is difficult to know whether the 2005 Pontet-Canet will ultimately eclipse the hedonism and density of the flamboyant 2003, but it is unquestionably a stunning effort. Inky/black-colored with a classic Pauillac perfume of licorice, black currant liqueur, graphite, cedar, and spice box, it is full-bodied, with magnificent concentration, formidable tannins, and an Arnold Schwartzenegger-like structure (when he was 25 years younger)...

Exudes elegance and nobility. Shy, but approachable. Superlative freshness, with its best years to come.

Great balance, concentration and energy. A lively Medoc wine with great verve. There is grace to the power. Impressive.

In a perfect spot already, this offer inky fruit and hints of iron, toasty oak and cool minerality. Long, expanding finish.

Powerful with structure and acidity. Wonderful dark berries on the nose, together with tobacco and leather. Great wine that will develop beautifully the next decade.
