    (Chateau Pontet-Canet Pauillac) A dense style of fruit in the nose, very defined and upright, black fruit character, has a style rather more reminiscent of a St Julien than Pauillac, a vintage effect perhaps? There is a little broadness and sweetness to it though, dark and grainy, sitting beneath these more superficial characteristics. There is an evocative style to it as well, early maturity, notes of tea leaves. With time really opening up - showing overt maturity, tea leaves and rust - lovely. Moderate weight on entry, balanced midpalate, slightly loose knit through the middle and slightly raw structure too, very tannic style coming out from beneath through the fruit in a slightly sharp fashion. Needs time. Not a lean and mean greenie at all though, lots of tannin in the finish although less than the 2000 I feel. More flesh would be very welcome. Good wine which will make super drinking with dinner in a few years from now.
