The wine showed beautifully. The prominent feature of the nose is cigar box, reminded me exactly of the boxes my grandfather would give me. Beautiful, deep smell. Just wanted to keep breathing it. Some earth and leather but mostly cigar box. In the mouth the wine is beautiful. Little fruit, restrained tannin, all graceful Bordeaux masculinity. Leather, tobacco and cool earth. It was sad to finish the bottle, the last of a really good wine that significantly outperforms the vintage.

Zachys Mixed Tating: Mature but excellent fruit, vibrant and layered, showing reed fruits, currants. Long finish. A grand dame.

Tasted this at the Zachys Bordeaux Confidential tasting on 5/14/15. Blueberries, blackberries and currants. Full-bodied. Maybe not quite as complex as I would have liked, but still very enjoyable.

Decanted over an hour. Delicious, but still a bit tannic, closed. This was our last bottle of 2004 which is a shame since this vintage should continue improving.

Superb wine and worth the price compared with those high end wines. Great on the nose and palate. Long lasting finishes.

1990 Château Pontet-Canet

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend more

5/13/2015 - Paul S wrote: 90 points

Kelvin's Baby Shower (Burlamacco, Amoy Street, Singapore): Disappointing. It was not a bad wine, but I would really have expected more from any good Pauillac in 1990. The nose rather flattered to deceive – this had an absolutely classic left-bank nose, with cedar and pencil lead, earth and tobacco and a nice core of cassis aromas. Really quite nice. Unfortunately, the palate came across rather preternaturally soft, having a rather soupy feel to its cassis, cedar and light capsicum notes. Flavours were okay, the balance was alright, with a decent amount of acidity, but the tannins were very soft, almost a bit mushy as the wine slid away into a tobacco filled finish. I wonder if this was an off bottle. Served blind, it was pleasant enough but not great, this felt like it should have been drunk up 4-5 years ago.

2012 Château Pontet-Canet

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend more

5/14/2015 - Eric Guido Likes this wine: 91 points

The nose came across as compact, yet aching to explode, showing rich black fruits, airy spice, violet florals, a hint of grapefruit and bell pepper. On the palate, I found firm, palate-staining wild berry fruits and herbal tones with silky textures giving way to tannin. The finish was long with lean dark fruits and inner floral tones in a very chiseled expression—yet the slightly green characteristics here reminded me more of a cool-climate Cabernet, not Pontet-Canet.

5/14/2015 - Eric Guido Likes this wine: 91 points

The nose was dark, almost sappy, with intense pine, cedar and menthol, followed by floral perfumes and crushed raspberry fruit. On the palate, it was rich with silky textures, giving way to young tannin. A mix of tart wild berry saturated the senses with a gorgeous sense of balance throughout. The fruit here lingered long upon the senses with hints of inner floral tones and tannin.

2010 Château Pontet-Canet

5/14/2015 - Eric Guido Likes this wine: 94 points

The nose was beautiful, with cool, restrained dark fruits, floral perfumes, earth tones and a hint of menthol. On the palate, I found silky textures with a dense, massive wave of dark red, blueberry fruits and minerals, which seemed to envelope its youthful tannins. The finish was almost completely shut down with dried-out dark fruits held tight by imposing structure. I imagine 2010 Pontet-Canet may outlive me.

2009 Château Pontet-Canet

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend more

5/14/2015 - Eric Guido Likes this wine: 97 points

This is a truly stunning young Pontet-Canet, with its large, dark persona, yet it somehow remained cool toned and wonderfully fresh. The nose displayed crushed dark berry, floral tones, and a hint of pine, minerals and smoke. It was like velvet on the palate, with underlying sweet tannin, showing rich dark fruits, balsamic tones, spice and baker’s chocolate. The finish was long with saturating fruit, which slowly faded to reveal a zing of acidity and young tannic spine.

2008 Château Pontet-Canet

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend more

5/14/2015 - Eric Guido Likes this wine: 93 points

With an intense nose that hinted at both the sweet and savory, the ’08 Pontet-Canet showed notes of red and blueberry, sweet spice, rich reduction sauce, and hints of moist soil tones. On the palate, I found silky textures with a medium-weight frame and a veil of ripe red and black berry fruit, which seemed to nearly mask its youthful tannins, while notes of spice, graphite and a hint of citrus saturated the senses. This lasted long throughout the finish, as its fruit slowly faded into fine tannin. This is a dark beast of wine, yet elegant and in need of time in the cellar. This should be amazing in 5-10 years’ time.

2007 Château Pontet-Canet

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend more

5/14/2015 - Eric Guido Likes this wine: 90 points

The nose showed tart red and blue fruit with floral tones, a hint of bell pepper and dusty soil. On the palate, I found lean textures with a slight green character to its red fruit. A mix of acid and tannin buzzed across the senses, leaving notes of bitter cherry and minerals on the finish. This is not a bad wine, and it would have probably shown better if not surrounded by so many superior vintages; but on this day, it came across as the weakest wine of the tasting.

The nose showed dusty soil, hints of spice, minerals, cedar and crushed dark berries. On the palate, I found brilliant red fruits with contrastingly dense textures and building tannin. Fruit saturated the palate throughout the finish, yet it was kept in check by youthful tannin. I’m very interested in seeing where this wine will go with time in the cellar.

2003 Château Pontet-Canet

5/14/2015 - Eric Guido Likes this wine: 91 points

The nose was, at first, dark and brooding, but it came to life with time in the glass to reveal dried red fruits, balsamic tones, dark soil and minerals with a hint of undergrowth. On the palate, it was unbelievably smooth, with medium-bodied textures giving way to ripe red fruits and a hint of sweet herbs. The finish showed remnants of tannic grip with notes of cherry liquor and red licorice, yet a slight lingering heat detracted to a small degree.

The nose was dark yet very pretty, with crushed red berry, hints of herbs, savory reduction, and airy citrus notes providing lift. On the palate, I found soft yet engaging textures with notes of tart cherry, autumnal spice, and slight bitter berry tone. This was wonderfully fresh, while remaining smooth and fun, finishing with a hint of tannin with lingering notes of cherry.

Zachy's Wine Auction - Late Spring 2015; 5/14/2015-5/15/2015 (Le Bernadin Prive): Drinking super young, the tannins are almost chewy. It's an elegant wine, as previous notes mentioned definitely a cigar box, wood. Very kind of John to share.

ChTR kokous 13.05.2015 (Uusi-S): Decanted for an hour. Quality shines through here, elegant cassis, good tannins, a touch of barnyard. Made an impression on several tasters.

After a two hour decant, this offered notes of plum, cassis, lead pencil, cigar box, and still evident tannins. Revisit in 3 plus years.

Brisket, Bordeaux, and Rhones: It seems to be evolving slowly and is still very tight and rustic, and the comparison to some of the other wines tasted with it didn't do it any favors.

All prune and leather. From a Swedish cellar, and from a bottling that should be above average, but this bottle did not perform.
