2002 Château Pontet-Canet

Community Tasting Note


90 Points

Thursday, November 20, 2003 - Tasted at the Chateau from the barrel along side a 1995 Pontet Canet. Impressive, nicely structured wine dominated now by a mixture of red and black fruit on the nose (the other Medoc I tried all showed primarily black fruit). Fine tannins and ripe fruit make for a good balance. The wine only falls short in showing great complexity (in contrast to the Mouton 2002 tasted immediately afterward). Worth acquiring, however, for the right price, I think this wine will be drinkable before some of the other 2002 Medoc...
