Pauillac. A big jump here, five years forward. Surprisingly open and forward nose here, minerally with a little twist of sooty toffee. Clearly already a different style to the 1994 and most certainly the 1990. It has a darker character, dark plum skins, cherry skins too. Rather a restrained and elegant entry onto the palate, maintaining a very light presence through the midpalate, although with a finely defined structure, and just brimming with vivacious acidity and dancing tannins. It has gained a refined character and style, but it has a lightness that reflects the vintage I guess. Soft and supple. Good freshness and style though. Lots of precise tannins in the finish, and just a little chewy. From a Pontet-Canet retrospective. 16/20 (February 2010) The Wine Doctor
