A little dusty on the nose at first but breathes to show aromas of green bean, sweet tobacco and blackcurrant. It it quite meaty and savoury in the mouth. It is still fresh but you sense the wine is nearly ready. Length is just ok and it is a decent Pontet-Canet but not a brilliant one.

(Chateau Pontet-Canet Pauillac) Now approaching eight years of age, this wine continues to show a good depth of colour. There are some notes of early maturity on the nose, with some meaty fruit style, but overall it is quite reserved. Classically styled palate, with attractively ripe fruit and moderate acidity, but with well rounded corners. There is still some tannin to shed here, but I sense this is all coming together quite harmoniously. Will make very good drinking with time.
(Chateau Pontet-Canet Pauillac) A youthful looking wine. Another exotic nose with fading, oak-derived notes of vanilla and caramel. A touch of green pepper perhaps? Medium bodied with clean, pleasing fruit on the palate. Correct structure, with soft background tannins and good acidity. Firmer tannins on the finish. A little length.
