1x botttle of Chateau Pontet Canet, one of the shining stars in Pauillac with a quality shoulder to shoulder with the Lafites and the Moutons. Released last year from temperature controlled storage and kept in cool dark cellar since. Bottle in perfect condition as seen on the photos.

'Produced in the Pauillac appellation, Château Pontet-Canet is a 5ème cru classé. Aged 40 to 45 years on average, the vines are planted on a total surface of 81 hectares. The vineyard benefits from a terroir composed of Quaternary gravel. The ageing of the wine is carried out for 16 months in oak barrels (60% in new barrels).

At tasting, the Château Pontet-Canet 2002 develops fragrances of violets and red fruits on a subtle woody aroma. The attack is full and the palate is structured, distinguished, and full-bodied. The tannins are magnificent and incredibly soft. The length on the palate is fantastic.' Millesima

'A thick, unctuous texture immediately suggests something rather special. Substantial tannins emerge in the finish, suggesting this is another Pauillac that will require plenty of cellaring. Approximately two-thirds of the production made it into this 2002. A dense purple color accompanies aromas of pure, rich creme de cassis. With medium to full body, and a long, concentrated finish, it should be at its finest between 2010-2025. This is a very classic wine.' Score: 92. Robert Parker

'A dark garnet core. The nose demands some coaxing, blackberry, a touch of bay leaf and wild hedgerow. Very fine definition. After a few minutes in the glass, it develops a subtle liquorice element. The palate is medium-bodied, full of freshness and vigour. The tannins are not quite as fine as a great vintages, this is a brisk, brusque Pontet-Canet that actually does remind me of Mouton-Rothschild in many ways. Then, a little herbaceous towards the dry finish, linear and moderate length. Very good for the vintage.' Score: 91. Neil Martin
