This was the winemakers favorite year, even though the 09 got 💯. And oh my was this a special experience. Just kept getting better as the night wore on.

Still very good but not as rich as I expected it. I liked it more in 2009. At this point I would wait for that pauillac terroir to shine through (5-10years from now) pleasant but didn’t show the way some of the other Pontet canet has recently

Cassis blackberry. Cedar, ashes, forest mist. Pencil lead. Still a bit dry and enough tanine to keep it for a while.

This is drinking absolutely beautifully. Big, ripe and delicious. Gobs of dark fruit, yet complex and balanced. Like a top flight Napa bottle, in a good way.
