1976 Château Pontet-Canet

Community Tasting Note


89 Points

Friday, September 15, 2006 - Upon opening this wine had a vile smell and taste, completely disjointed and cloudy in appearance. I was about ready to write it off, but decided to Audouze it for a few hours. Well whaddya know, 6 hours later after sitting uncorked in the fridge and then the counter for half an hour to bring to proper temp, this wine made had an almost magical transformation, turning from an ugly duckling into what I would consider a beautiful classic claret. Amazing what a little O2 can do.
