2003 Château Pontet-Canet

Community Tasting Note


90 Points

Sunday, March 10, 2013 - I am not sure about the hype this 2003 wine gets. Not bad, some freshness first, the palate is thick but also kind of rustic and haggard, finish is long but not the most pleasant. Compared to a 2003 Haut Brion last week, the Pontet gains indeed a higher rating. But after 10 years the 2003 wines are unbalanced and harsh. Time will tell, but I am not very optimistic...
