2008 Château Pontet-Canet

2008 Château Pontet-Canet – France, Bordeaux, Médoc, Pauillac (2/12/2011)
Ripe black fruit, sweet spices, earl-grey tea and liquorice on the aromatic nose. Lots of tasty black and red fruit on the palate, intermingled with sweet, spicy tannins, exotic spices, tea, chocolate and liquorice. Primary, but lots of material and great length. Will probably need a lot of time to fully develop. Might merit a higher score. (94 points)
