2000 Château Pontet-Canet

Community Tasting Note


93 Points

Saturday, November 3, 2012 - Opened one hour before dinner, cork looked great. First sniff of the bottle was a little funky very soon became a nice bouquet of truffle. Color was still dark and could tell this was going to be a big pauillac. First taste was full of black berry and black cherry. Was very tightly wound but a nice expression of Bordeaux. Went excellent with the triple cream and filet.
3 hrs later, starting to close down. Overall, nice Bordeaux which showed signs of something great to come. Wil have to revisit in a few years as this one was still showing its youth. On to the cognac for the remainder of the Night. Cheers.
