2003 Pontet Canet

Colour: Red
Vintage: 2003
Appellation: Pauillac
95+ (RP)
A fifth growth by the 1855 classification, and one of Pauillacs largest properties, Pontet Canet has improved beyond recognition with the since the early 1990s. Alfred Tesseron has overseen much of the investment gone into transforming this Chateau; it has venerable terroir, being located next to Mouton-Rothschild (with which it is often well compared) but in the last 15 years they have truly taken their wine to a level which makes a mockery of their lowly Fifth Growth classification (if the 1855 classification were to be re-run today, they would surely be a Second Growth). Their commitment to combining traditional practices with the most forward-thinking techniques – organics, biodynamics, fermentation in concrete eggs in the winery – and their absolute focus on just producing one single wine from their estate, has helped them to develop an amazing following.

Tasting Notes and Scores

Wine Advocate

The spectacular 2003 Pontet Canet is still incredibly young and vigorous. This full-bodied classic boasts a dense purple color as well as a superb nose of graphite, creme de cassis, forest floor, licorice and a hint of truffles, low acidity, and extravagant richness. Most of the tannins have been resolved in this superstar of the vintage. It should continue to drink well for 10-15+ years.Drink: 2014 - 2029.

Tasted at Bordeaux Index's "10-Year On" tasting in London. The Pontet-Canet 2003 has a very pure, quite alluring bouquet with blackberry and a touch of blueberry, mint and cedar. It is quite refined compared to recent vintage with very good focus. The palate is medium-bodied with a very supple, harmonious entry. This Pontet Canet is silky smooth and very composed, though it is missing a little complexity and ambition on the finish. But otherwise this is a lovely Pauillac that is drinking beautifully now. Tasted March 2013.
