International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 126

($60-$70) Ruby-red. Roasted blackberry, coffee and mocha on the nose, along with a grapey quality. Fat, superripe and sweet; wonderfully full, sexy and broad. Just this side of exotic, but sound natural acidity gives shape to the thick, mellow dark berry and chocolate flavors. Finishes with substantial tannins and resounding length. This will be drinkable several years earlier than the 2005.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 164

One cannot say enough about the labors of proprietor Alfred Tesseron, who has personally overseen the dramatic increase in quality of the wines at Pontet-Canet which started in a significant manner with 1994. This is a classic Pauillac-styled wine (meaning oodles of cassis flavors), as one might expect from a vineyard on the plateau of Pauillac, across the street from Mouton-Rothschild. One of the great successes of the vintage and certainly one of the most profound Pontet-Canets made over the last decade is the 2003. Deep purple to the rim with a glorious nose of scorched earth, black currant jam, smoke, licorice, and roasted meats, it is full-bodied, incredibly powerful, dense, with low acidity but high tannin, broad-shouldered, and savory. This is a stunning, pure, classic Pontet-Canet that should be at its best between 2010 and 2035.

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling

Gorgeous raspberry, licorice and currant with hints of toasted oak. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and lots of currant and berry character. Refined. Long, long finish. 22,500 cases made.

This excellent pontet canet is entering to prime drinking. Medium to full body on palate. Great aromas of red fruits as cherry currant and then a sniff of a classic pauillac. This is wine with extraordinary balance, great depth an unremarkable finesse. Getting airing for more than 30 min and will gain complexities, new aromas and more depth even feels heavier....this wine stills years ahead of great drinking. Opens now for freshness and glamour of this all around Pauillac.
