Tasting Notes

"Upgraded in score over my Originl rating, which was several points lower, Alfred Tesseron has done a remarkable job since 1994 with Pontet-Canet, which has been hitting first-growth levels since 2003. But the 2000 also shows exceptionally well. In need of another decade of cellaring, this dense purple wine has a classic nose of incense, charcoal, creme de cassis, and subtle new oak. Full-bodied, powerful, still very tannic, and shockingly backward, this is a big, rich wine that has put on weight and seems to need more time than I Originlly predicted. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2035+." - Robert Parker Jr., The Wine Advocate (6/28/2010, Issue 189), Ratings: 94+, Drink: 2015-2035
