Recommended by the wine maker as her favorite, aside from the recent 100 pt. versions. After an hour decant, this vintage delivered big plum, blackberry, spicy nirvana. Excellent.

Too young, but hey, that’s why I bought a few. So I could try over time. On opening, it’s quite saline with high acid. It’s refined with blue and red fruit. After a few hours, it starts to integrate more. Can’t wait to taste it on day 2.

Very dense, lush and ripe. Intense blackberry with notes of graphite and tobacco. Not over-ripe but pushing the edges. Lovely plush mouthfeel and long. Still young

Exotic, deep bouquet of mulling spices, orange peel, sweet pipe tobacco and rose petal. Beautifully layered on the palate, with remarkable persistence and balance. Superb! 1947 Pontet Canet (recorked in 1986).

Sweet maturing fruit, lovely balance. At 15 years old, the 5th growth '99s are in full stride.

Just learned that Mr. Parker gave this 100 points. Nose is stunningly perfumed, exotic, complex. Palate fades a bit too quickly. Alcohol seems higher than stated 14%. Not a perfect wine, but very good.

Bright nose, jumps out of the glass, fresh. Balanced with a long finish, fine integrated tannins, not a deep dark wine, but lively and delicate
