    (Chateau Pontet-Canet Pauillac) Nice colour with maturity at the rim. This has a Cabernet dominated blackcurrant nose. Like the 1993 this too seems a little hollow on entry but things quickly pick up. Overall the palate is impressive, silkily textured, sweet and structured, with fine-grained tannins behind a depth of glossy fruit. Balanced acidity. Just a touch more tannic on the finish. Needs another year, maybe two.
