    July 24, 2020 - Cassis , blackberry and graphite on the palate. Generous acidity and fruit remain. Plenty of life ahead of it.

    July 8, 2020 - Another debut for one of the 2000's, and once again it doesn't disappoint. Admittedly it is still in evolvement, but is already very approachable. The nose is packed with fresh cherry and cedar with violet notes. The palate shows its Paulliac profile with tobacco and graphite prominent. Everything is well balanced and integrated, and the finish is 30+ seconds. At this stage it is a little lacking depth mid palate and on the finish. I assume this will come in time and hopefully warrant another point or two in the future. It does need 5 hours + in the decanter.

    July 2, 2020 - Nez complexe, écurie, champignon, fruit noir. En bouche, c est tout en rondeur, tannins bien fondus, beaucoup de finesse et belle longueur. Excellent

    June 27, 2020 - Integrated sweet tannins. Bright cherries and smoke with a medium long finish of cedar and tobacco. Hearty, works well with grilled meats. Drinking well with a vigorous decant.

    (Chateau Pontet-Canet Pauillac) Fabulous nose here, big and smoky, roasted confit fruit, dark and gritty-grainy in character. Wonderful style. Roast coffee grounds, dark in style. Fine fleshy sweetness on entry, but not over-the-top, not a sweet, confit note in sight. There is a firm and polished texture to it, a savoury character, with lots of tannic substance although it does not show through past the texture and fruit on the palate, only on the finish when there is a flourish of grippy tannin coating the mouth. There is a firm, grainy character which sits very well with the rest of the wine. Brimming with potential here, but needs another five years at the bare minimum, and I am sure it will be much better at ten.

    (Pontet Canet) Beautiful precision and elegance. Reminded me of a baby '00 LLC. Laser-like focus and sweet cassis licoricey fruit. Lots of mineral and cigar box on the nose with very sweet fruit and ripe tannins. Like an undualting wavelength though opening and closing every five minutes . . . but man what fruit. Tremendous juice.

    (Pontet Canet) This showed well but not as well as it could. Maybe this was closing down. Classic Pauillac nose of tar, leather, tobacco and a melange of red and black fruits. Even some sweet corn after five minutes in the glass. Dense and delineated with ripe, fat, silky fruit. Very finesse. Fruit takes over your mouth. Good inner mouth aromas and great length.
