Don't even think about it. Seriously. Do NOT pop the cork. 10 more years. Maybe.

A solid showing for a tough vintage Pontet-Canet. Benefitted from a 1.5 hr decant, rich cedar on the nose, brambly strawberry and red cherry fruit mixed with saddle leather notes, bit of barnyard. Quite nice, feels like it could get a bit better.

A fantastic 2002, this lovely wine shows once more that today there aren't really bad years in Bordeaux, this Pontet Canet was well structured rich and tempting. Deep red, tempting rich multi layered nose ripe cherries, black current, coffee, cigar box, and tea leaves, full rich body, dry tannins, full of black fruit, high acidity and a long chewy finish. Was worth the wait, my score 90. Drink to 2022

Smells awesome, cedar, spice, and everything nice. Palate loses something.

Drinking at prime. Solid claret but nothing worth noting.

Un beau ht médoc... Bcq de fraîcheur, tanins encore un peu fermés, trop végétale à mon goût... Et si on se donnait RDV dans 10 ans??? Gros potentiel, belle quille...

Given the price this wasn't bad. Not terribly well integrated, but still seems like it could age a bit. Will see how it is on day 2.
