2009 Hauts de Pontet-Canet

Community Tasting Note


88 Points

Sunday, November 4, 2012 - 2009 Bordeaux (for Public TV) (World Series of Wine): A nice showing for this second wine (Pontet Canet). Not sure there is any value here though as I think this sells closer to $50 now. Ruby/purple in color. Clear and bright. The nose is dusty with cassis. Someone said peppery but I found it more like bramble (think Zinfandel). Nice texture and very smooth to drink. Dark cherries, some bitterness (not bad), and a bit of black raspberries. Firm tannins. Somewhat generic, but a find and enjoyable wine. Nothing in common to the Grand Vin.
